NOMINATE (2017)

Paying tribute to the largest profession in the Springfield metro area, the Health Care Champions event evolved out of a partnership with the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce over the past four years. This year, SBJ will honor people in the following categories:

• Top Doctor
Honoring southwest Missouri doctors, this category includes doctors who care for us from head to toe – neurosurgeons to pediatrists.

• Nurse
This award honors registered nurses on the front lines in areas such as emergency room nurse, pediatrics, NICU, nurse anesthetists and nurse midwives.

• Therapists
This category honors those health care workers who elevate our natural abilities – therapists. Examples include speech, physical, occupational, psychological and vision.

• Technicians
Often behind the scenes, this categories honors the people who keep the hospital wheels in motion. Technicians such as lab, X-ray, patient care, clinical laboratory, medical records, pharmacy and EMTs.

• Administrators
These honorees may never touch a patient, but they make the patient experience better. Examples include marketing, operating, case managers, ancillary services, vice presidents and others.

Health Care Champions will be featured in a special publication and recognized in during an awards dinner.
