Quality Health Foundation (QHF), the mission arm of Quality Health Strategies (QHS), recently awarded grants totaling $380,000 to fifteen organizations in Maryland and Washington, DC supporting local healthcare-related quality improvement efforts.

Of the 67 applications, 15 organizations received grants. “The Board received many diverse and deserving applications this year,” said Dr. Molly Burgoyne, QHF Board of Directors Chair. “It’s reassuring to know there are so many organizations programs designed to improve the health of our most vulnerable populations. Ultimately, we chose a stellar group of programs covering a wide geographic area with diverse health concerns. Dr. Catherine Smoot-Haselnus, QHS Board chair, added “The work these organizations do is outstanding and often go unnoticed. We are proud to provide both funding and encouragement to the many volunteers and staff members who serve the community so well.”
