Created in 2009 as an awards program, Healthcare Heroes expanded in 2014 to offer an awards program and a community health improvement summit in alternate years. A Healthcare Hero could be a physician, nurse, allied health professional, researcher, administrator, first responder, educator or caregiver who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Healthcare Heroes should demonstrate honesty, integrity, humility, courage and commitment.
