Awards & Scholarship Gala

Each year HAH recognizes top-performing staff from Hawaii’s hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, home care companies and hospices.  Join HAH as we honor the caregivers, physicians, leaders and behind-the-scenes heroes who profoundly impact people’s lives every day.

This year, the 2020 HAH Awards and Scholarship Gala will be held on Saturday, October 24 at the Ko`olau Ballrooms at 5:00 pm.


Sponsorships for the 2020 HAH Awards and Scholarship Gala are now available for those who would like to recognize talented and compassionate professionals working in Hawaii’s healthcare sector.

As in past years there are two sponsorship types from which to choose: Media sponsorships, which make possible the public call for nominations for the only patient-nominated awards program in the nation, and offer tv, radio, newspaper and online exposure; and Gala sponsorships, which support the gala in honor of the awardees.

Sponsorship levels, benefits, and reservation form can be seen here.

The deadline for Gold, Diamond and Silver sponsorships are April 15. The deadline for Ruby, Emerald and Pearl sponsorships are August 18.

HAH thanks its sponsors for their generosity and support. Because of that support, the Hawaii Healthcare Heroes awards are entering their seventh year in recognizing the best healthcare providers in the state, and the Gala has grown into an annual industry celebration with close to 400 participants.


Employees of HAH member organizations and their immediate family members are eligible to apply for healthcare scholarships of $500 to $2,000 to cover professional certification and healthcare-related education from the community college up to doctoral degree levels.
