The 2021 Zero Harm Awards Application Portal is Now Open

SCHA is pleased to announce that the application portal for the Drive to Zero Harm Leadership Award, the Zero Harm Clinical Awards, and the Drive to Zero Suicide Award, is now open!

SCHA’s Zero Harm initiatives recognize the high reliability efforts that South Carolina hospitals are making every day in order to eliminate harm from their facilities. From creating a culture of safety on leadership teams to implementing robust process improvement efforts, Zero Harm seeks to highlight and celebrate South Carolina hospitals that are reaching for the highest levels of excellence in quality and safety across all services, maintained over long periods of time.

We’ve made many program updates and additions for 2021, including two new awards, the Drive to Zero Suicide Award and the Drive to Zero Harm Excellence Award. Watch the 2021 Zero Harm Webinar and see our FAQ document here for any questions about these changes.

If you are a hospital and have any additional questions about these awards, contact Amanda Hiers at or 803.399.9658. For media requests, contact Kyle Petersen at 803.744.3557.
