Established in 2001, the James W. West, MD, Quality Improvement Awards recognize NAATP-member addiction treatment organizations that improve the quality and effectiveness of their services and document their results along the way.
The award is named in honor of James W. West, a longtime quality-improvement advocate and medical director emeritus at the Betty Ford Center. The 2011 award recipients will be honored at the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers' (NAATP) annual conference, held May 14-17 in Phoenix.
This, the 11 th annual award, recognizes two programs whose efforts demonstrate comprehensive approaches to quality improvement. Foundations Recovery Network (Nashville, Tenn.) is recognized for its Patient Centered Care initiative, while Memorial Hermann PaRC (Prevention and Recovery Center, Houston, Tex.) is recognized for a body of work comprised of four quality improvement efforts.
