Community Leadership nominations sought
Healthcare attracts people who are committed to making a difference. Their life’s work is based on a mission to help those around them have healthier and happier lives.
It’s no surprise, then, that many people who succeed in healthcare and rise to the executive ranks take community service seriously. They know that helping people requires moving beyond the walls of their headquarters or medical campuses to serve the community at large.
In recognition of these efforts, Modern Healthcare created the Community Leadership Award. It honors top healthcare executives for the work they do outside of the organizations and corporations they lead to improve the health and well-being of others, whether they are just down the street or halfway around the world.
Nominations for Modern Healthcare’s third annual Community Leadership Award are now being accepted. The submission deadline is June 6. To be eligible for the award, a nominee must be a CEO, president, administrator or other top executive of a healthcare organization or corporation from any sector of the industry. Also, outside volunteer work must have occurred within the past 24 months.
To participate, a nominee’s organization or corporation must submit a letter describing the candidate’s community leadership commitment within three criteria: how far the executive’s service efforts go beyond his or her core job responsibilities; the voluntary nature of the work done outside the organization or corporation; and the demonstrated positive impact of that work on the community.
A resume, biography or curriculum vitae and supporting documentation also are required. Supporting documents may include letters of recommendation and digital content such as photos, videos and audio files. Candidates may not nominate themselves.
Modern Healthcare will select up to 10 finalists from the nominations received. Finalists and their submission information will be posted on Aug. 4 at ModernHealthcare.com. Readers will be able to vote through Sept. 19 for their choice among the nominees. One winner and several honorable mentions will be selected, with 50% of the final results based on reader votes and the other 50% based on analysis by Modern Healthcare’s senior editors. Modern Healthcare will profile the winner and honorable mentions in a special section of the Nov. 17 issue.
