Health Minister Juliane Bogner Strauss: “The 'SALUS' puts those people and organizations in the foreground who are committed to consistently pursuing systematic quality work in the healthcare sector. Their work brings us a step closer to our goal of being able to offer Styrians the best and highest quality care.”
“Day after day, the employees in a wide variety of healthcare professions perform humane and high-quality work - despite the difficult general conditions. It is all the more important to publicly reward special achievements! 'SALUS', the Styrian quality award for health, does exactly that and thus offers a visible sign of recognition. We would like to thank everyone who contributes significantly to the quality of care in our state through their competence and commitment,” emphasized the Styrian ÖGK state agency committee chairmen Joseph Harb and Vincent Harrer.
