Jackson Healthcare instituted the Hospital Charitable Services Awards in 2010 to identify leading community health service programs, share their stories and make them models for other programs. Through this recognition program, Jackson Healthcare also cultivates a community of hospital professionals wanting to encourage and learn from one another.

Each nominee had to demonstrate excellence in the following five criteria areas: community impact, innovation, collaboration, transferability and leading practice.

The Noyes Health Diabetes Self-Management Program will be featured in an eBook that Jackson Healthcare is scheduled to publish in March 2013.
