UW Medicine established the UW Medicine Cares Award in 2013, a program to formally recognize and celebrate the accomplishments and excellence of those in the UW Medicine community who consistently exemplify the UW Medicine Service Culture Guidelines. The guidelines are professional standards that ensure that anyone who encounters UW Medicine receives the same great care and service throughout the system.
Each UW Medicine entity – Harborview Medical Center, Northwest Medical Center, Valley Medical Center, UW Medical Center, UW Neighborhood Clinics, UW Physicians and Airlift Northwest – participates in the UW Medicine Cares Award program.

Dr. Eileen Bulger Discusses Trauma Study
Harborview Medical Center is one of 10 trauma centers in the United States and Canada that aim to participate in a study of a therapeutic drug on people suspected of having sustained a traumatic brain injury. The study differs from nearly all medical research in that it has received federal approval to proceed without getting consent from study subjects prior to the initiation of the treatment.
