HSGCF Patient Safety Grant
The HSG Charitable Foundation grants up to $25,000 for projects that improve quality, reduce patient harm and/or improve patient outcomes for Missouri Hospital Plan members.

Each Missouri Hospital Plan (MHP) member hospital may apply for up to $25,000 through either one grant application or multiple applications combined. The grant application process begins in late August of each year. Funding priority will be given to proposals that are innovative, evidence based, and directly aimed at improving patient safety and reducing professional liability claims.

Patient Safety Grants are awarded for projects that improve quality, reduce patient harm and/or improve patient outcomes for Missouri Hospital Plan members. The program objective is to encourage and support member efforts in developing and implementing innovative patient safety and quality initiatives in a collaborative process with physicians. Projects should aim to reduce or eliminate risk of adverse events and improve patient care.
