Health Care Heroes nomination form
Mississippi Business Journal is looking for nominations to identify and honor outstanding men and women in the health care industry whose contributions have increased the well-being of the community.
Submitting multiple nominations for one nominee is not necessary, as the selection committee will not decide based on show of support but rather on quality and thoroughness of supporting information.
Honorees will be recognized in six categories:
Animal Care: Honors an individual from the veterinary field whose treatment of pets and other animals is above and beyond normal care.
First Responder: Honors individuals such as the military, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, firefighters and police for their professional achievement and community involvement in their line of duty.
Nurse: Honors individuals from the nursing field whose performance is considered exemplary by patients and doctors and provides a model of professionalism to peers.
Physician: Honors doctors who work to discover new medicine or practices that can save lives or improve the quality of life for a large number of people. These honorees are also involved in community organizations and outreach programs that focus on improving the community’s health.
Professional: Honors health care workers other than doctors and nurses. Examples include administrators, researchers, technicians and professors.
Volunteer: Honors nonpayroll individuals who reach out with time or skills to help patients or health care providers.
