Welcome to The Exemplar Award

The Exemplar Award is an innovative new program developed by ACHS to recognise a system or service within a healthcare organisation that has achieved and sustained high performance results.

The award is a symbol of recognition for healthcare organisations that produce a high performing system or service which is world-leading and translates to high quality consumer / patient outcomes.

The Exemplar Award program is open to any accredited healthcare organisation, regardless of accrediting agency affiliation. To be eligible, organisations must not have had any high risk or major non-compliant issues identified in the last three years.
