To recognize excellence, promote innovation and honor the efforts of organizations and individuals making a significant impact on the quality of health care in our area, the Rochester Business Journal created the Health Care Achievement Awards. Honorees, selected in eight categories, will be profiled in a special supplement published in the spring and will be recognized at a luncheon awards ceremony on March 26.
Awards will be given in the following eight categories:
Health Care Innovation, Management, Medical Professional, Nurse, Physician,
Senior Care, Special Needs and Volunteer.
Health Care Innovation: This award honors a company or individual primarily responsible for a medical science discovery or for development of a new procedure, device or treatment that can save lives or improve the quality of life for a large number of people.
Management: This award recognizes an individual who serves in a management role in a health care institution. This person should have made measurable positive contributions to his or her organization. Factors to be judged include evidence of measurable results as well as testimonials from peers and administrators.
Medical Professional: This award recognizes individuals who serve our community by providing services beyond the clinical setting. The category is open, but not limited, to licensed practical nurses, physical therapists and home health care aides.
