Lew Brown Memorial Award Recipients

Each year, the Washington State Healthcare Safety Council (WSHSC) recognizes a single individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of health care safety. Those of us in healthcare safety work very unpredictable and long hours. It is important to take time and offer recognition to key people who truly make a difference.

The Lew Brown Memorial Award is presented each year in memory of Mr. Lew Brown, who was a loss control manager for a major insurance carrier and a member of the WSHSC for many years. Lew dedicated much of his career to the specialty of health care safety. He was always ready to go the extra mile to support health care safety issues.
