Application Portal Open for 2022 Monroe E. Trout Premier Cares Award

Cares-Award-Blog.png#asset:5667

Each year during our annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition, Premier recognizes the exemplary efforts of a community organization dedicated to helping the medically underserved with the Monroe E. Trout Premier Cares Award.

We receive numerous applications each year for the Premier Cares Award, and the inspiring work of these organizations often moves our judges – made up of national healthcare leaders and Premier team members – to tears.

Premier has presented the Cares Award annually since 1991, when it was created by Dr. Monroe E. Trout, former CEO of American Healthcare Systems, one of Premier’s heritage organizations. The award is sponsored by Premier and its alliance of more than 4,400 hospitals and health systems and approximately 250,000 other providers and organizations.

We’re excited to announce that the 2022 Cares Award application portal is now open through Jan. 7, 2022.

The award is available to nonprofit organizations, in either the public or private sector, that operate independently but are affiliated with a Premier member hospital or healthcare system in some way. Organizations must have programs for underserved populations that can be replicated in other communities, be able to show results covering a full one-year span prior to January 2022 and be able to articulate a sustainable future vision for the program.

Underserved populations include but are not limited to those which:

  • Suffer severely limited access to medical, dental or mental healthcare providers.
  • Bear high infant mortality.
  • Face low income, high poverty.
  • Experience high levels of drug abuse.
  • Are economically or medically vulnerable.
  • Possess a unique care need which is not being met through traditional means.

The winner of the Premier Cares Award receives a $100,000 gift from Premier to support their program and their community’s health.

Interested in applying or know of a nonprofit organization that should? Visit our application portal for details.
