In order to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 and support the broader Department of Health and Human Services response to the pandemic we need to cease the planning and delivery of the 2020 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards.       

We thank you for your support of the Victorian Public Healthcare Awards and we look forward to working with you in 2021 to celebrate excellence, dedication and innovation in public health, health services and service initiatives for the Victorian community.

The Victorian Public Healthcare Awards (VPHA) is an annual celebration of excellence, dedication and innovation in public health, health services and service initiatives that deliver informed and effective healthcare.

The Awards reflect priority areas in healthcare identified by the government and focus on the sectors' ability to drive change and improve health outcomes for all Victorians. They recognise leadership and excellence in the provision of publicly-funded healthcare for the Victorian community.

These Awards have been a highlight of the public healthcare sector for the past 15 years and include Victoria's most prestigious accolade - the Premier's Health Service of the Year Award.
