Grossmont Healthcare District seeks to honor

volunteers with 2018 Healthcare Heroes awards

The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD) is seeking nominees for its 2018 Healthcare Heroes Awards. Now in its 12th year, the Healthcare Heroes is GHD’s annual awards program recognizing volunteers who advance the delivery of quality health services in the East County region.

 

Volunteers are a significant part of care teams in local health organizations, working alongside doctors, nurses, community health workers, neighborhood navigators, community paramedics, and pharmacists to address the community’s medical and social needs. Nominees may include any individual volunteer or volunteer(s) of organizations who demonstrate selfless dedication beyond their paid duties.

 

“The purpose of the Healthcare Heroes Awards is to recognize volunteers whose unsung work in healthcare might not otherwise be celebrated,” said Michael Emerson, GHD board president. “We solicit the assistance of all East County residents in nominating their peers so we can recognize their commitment to care and inspire others.”

 

Some examples of volunteers eligible for nomination include health care educators, volunteer transportation providers, health professionals, first responders, community clinic volunteers, pastoral caregivers, grant writers, members of service clubs, members of policy or advocacy organizations, auxiliary members and healthcare-related youth volunteers. Nominees from prior years are eligible to be nominated again, if they were not previously selected.

 

The 2017 winners included a camp counselor with a big (and new) heart, a woman who drives seniors to doctor appointments, an 83-year-old retired psychologist, a new U.S. citizen from Iraq and a 17-year-old high school student.

 

Deadline for submission of entries is 3 p.m. on Friday, March 9. Entries can be submitted online through the GHD website, e-mailed, or mailed to the GHD offices at 9001 Wakarusa St., La Mesa. Nomination forms are available at www.grossmonthealthcare.org/operations/special-events/healthcare-he....
