Health Care HeroesNow in its 11th year, IBJ's Health Care Heroes program recognizes deserving individuals and organizations in the health care industry.

IBJ solicits nominations from the public in five categories, and then a committee of judges from all facets of health care picks three finalists, including a winner in each category.

The five categories are as follows:

Community Achievement in Health Care honors a company or organization that has successfully implemented a program to address an acknowledged problem in health care administration or delivery.

Advancements in Health Care honors a company or individual primarily responsible for scientific discovery or for development of a new procedure, device or service that can save lives or improve quality of life for a large number of people.

Physician honors a physician whose performance on the job is considered exemplary by patients and peers.

Non-Physician honors an individual from nursing or allied health fields whose performance in the delivery of care is considered exemplary by patients and peers.

Volunteer honors an individual who is not employed in health care but has had a major impact in the delivery of care through volunteer work.
