They are all around you – women and men who go above and beyond the call of duty to help people in fields related to health care. Each year, News & Neighbor’s sister publication, The Business Journal of Tri-Cities TN/VA, honors some of these people as its Healthcare Heroes. Nominations for this year’s awards are open through May 19, 2017. To nominate an individual or organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter of recommendation telling what makes them a Healthcare Hero. A luncheon for the honorees will be held on July 21 at Meadowview Conference Resort and Convention Center in Kingsport. For more information on the specific kinds of actions and qualities that make someone a healthcare hero, visit jcnewsandneighbor.com/the-best-health-care-has-to-offer.
Partners for the 2017 Healthcare Heroes are Wellmont Health System; Frontier Health and First Citizens Bank.
