Welcome To The Beacon Award Home Page

The Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence recognizes the nation's top adult critical care, pediatric critical care, and progressive care units. Because it provides units a way to measure their systems, outcomes and environment, this award is increasingly linked to patient safety initiatives.
