Nominations Sought for Healthcare Heroes Class of 2024

SPRINGFIELD — In the spring of 2017, BusinessWest and its sister publication, the Healthcare News, created a new and exciting recognition program called Healthcare Heroes. It was launched with the theory that there are heroes working across this region’s wide, deep, and all-important healthcare sector, and that there was no shortage of fascinating stories to tell and individuals and groups to honor. That theory has certainly been validated.

But there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of heroes whose stories we still need to tell. And that’s where you come in.

Nominations for the class of 2024 are due Monday, July 29, and we encourage you to get involved and help recognize someone you consider to be a hero in the community we call Western Mass. in one (or more) of these eight categories:

• Patient/Resident/Client Care Provider;
• Health/Wellness Administrator;
• Emerging Leader;
• Community Health;
• Health Educator;
• Innovation in Health/Wellness;
• Collaboration in Health/Wellness; and
• Lifetime Achievement.

Nominations can be submitted at businesswest.com/healthcareheroes/nominations. For more information, call Melissa Hallock, Marketing and Events director, at (413) 781-8600, ext. 100, or email melissa@businesswest.com.
