Clinical Recognition Program

The Clinical Recognition Program provides a way to formally recognize professional clinical staff for their expertise. Through the program, clinical staff from six disciplines in Patient Care Services analyze their own practice and then seek recognition for the level of practice they have achieved. The program recognizes that valuable contributions are made by staff at every level and that excellence is a goal common to all.
