About the Bronson Safety Hero Award

The Bronson Safety Hero Award recognizes staff members who “Speak Up Today to Prevent Harm Tomorrow.” The award is given quarterly to clinical and non-clinical staff members who have spoken up to prevent harm, or who were key contributors to resolving or improving a process that promotes positive patient outcomes.

The quarterly winners are voted on annually by Bronson employees to determine the Bronson Safety Hero of the Year.
