The honorees, by award category, are as follows:

INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT

Gary S. Kaplan, M.D. - Virginia Mason Medical Center, Seattle, Washington

Dr. Kaplan, a practicing physician, is credited for guiding Virginia Mason Medical Center through a transformation that explicitly placed the interests of the patient first.

The patient safety and quality achievements realized at Virginia Mason as a result of consistently applying these innovative methods has attracted the interest and attention of health care leaders nationally and internationally.
