Nominations for the Harland Graef Quality Award instituted, by ChristianaCare, Union Hospital’s Performance Improvement and Patient Safety Committee (OPIPS), are now being accepted. This award is in memory of Harland Graef, a tireless proponent of patient safety, education and quality whose memory continues to inspire all of us. Harland was always one to ask if our actions are in the best interest of the patient. He had a passion for education and the health and well-being of the people of Cecil County.  This award is given to a person or group who exemplifies Harland’s dedication and commitment to the importance of making health and wellness a priority. Recipients of this award serve as outstanding role models for those working to enhance the health of Cecil County through education, quality and safety actions.
