The Victorian Public Healthcare Awards (VPHA), now in its 15th year, 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 14 years and include Victoria's most prestigious accolade - the Premier's Health Service of the Year Award.

Entries will be accepted from Victorian government-funded healthcare providers and organisations delivering public health research or programs.
