Doctor who leads Greenwich Hospital’s emergency department honored for improving patient care

The United Hospital Fund has announced the winners of its 2022 Excellence in Health Care Award for Quality Improvement Champions, including eight recipients from Yale New Haven Health.

Dr. Christopher Davison, medical director of Greenwich Hospital’s Emergency Medicine Department, was among the YNHHS individuals honored with the award in May.

The award honors extraordinary leadership in improving quality of care, patient safety and patient experience. Honorees are selected for their vision and accomplishments by participating health-care organizations from across the greater New York metropolitan region.

A total of 73 honorees were recognized at an in-person event in New York City in May after two years of virtual ceremonies. The honorees — physicians, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists and a broad range of other health care workers — were each selected by a senior executive at their institution.

They were drawn from hospital systems, long-term care facilities, home care organizations, independent practice associations, federally qualified health centers, medical groups and behavioral health organizations.

The other Yale New Haven Health recipients were: from Bridgeport Hospital, Christopher Bussiere, safety and quality specialist III in performance improvement; from Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, registered nurse Carin Gutelius, director of inpatient Nursing and Critical Care; from Northeast Medical Group, Dr. Karen E. Brown, medical director of primary care and co-chair YNHHS Care Signature Ambulatory Council; from Westerly Hospital, registered nurse Robin Heard-Albert, infection prevention, site lead; from Yale New Haven Health System, registered nurse Rebecca McCray, director of vaccine enterprise, and Nancy Hamson, director of Community Health Improvement; and from Yale New Haven Hospital, Dr. Adam L. Ackerman, physician lead and co-chair of Opioid Stewardship at Yale New Haven Health.

The Tribute to Excellence in Health Care was initiated in 2019 to recognize healthcare innovation and improvement aimed at achieving the highest quality patient care by UHF, an independent nonprofit organization with a mission to build a more effective and equitable health care system.
