United Hospital Fund hosts a number of special events each year to recognize outstanding leadership and voluntary efforts in the work of improving New York’s health care. Each provides opportunities to support UHF’s own work, while celebrating the dedication and important role of health care and community leaders and volunteers.
Bringing together health care, business, and community leaders, UHF's annual Gala honors extraordinary contributions to hospitals and health care in New York through three awards: the Health Care Leadership Award, the Distinguished Community Service Award, and the Special Tribute.
Distinguished Community Service Award (including recipients by year)
Tribute to Hospital Trustees
With the annual presentation of UHF’s Distinguished Trustee Award, the Tribute to Hospital Trustees salutes the exemplary service and dedication of the volunteer leaders who govern hospitals throughout the New York City metropolitan region.
Hospital Auxilian and Volunteer Achievement Awards
The Hospital Auxilian and Volunteer Achievement Awards ceremony is an annual event that honors individuals selected for their outstanding service as hospital volunteers and auxiliary members, as nominated by hospitals throughout the New York City metropolitan region.
