Grossmont Healthcare District Healthcare Heroes Awards
Grossmont Healthcare District holds an annual awards event to recognize front-line volunteer caregivers and other individuals who improve health and quality of life for East Region residents. Nominated by their peers, honorees are considered as true unsung heroes of healthcare whose day-in and day-out work might not otherwise be celebrated.
Who can be nominated?
Nominations are for volunteers who produce measurable outcomes that provide for a healthy East Region community, either by helping advance the delivery of healthcare or public health services. Employees of healthcare organizations are eligible if the nomination reflects volunteer work over-and-above their regular employment. Nominees must have made an outstanding achievement, providing positive results in their given field or community. Nominations from a single organization are limited to no more than three individuals from the same entity. Nominees from prior years are eligible to be nominated again, if they were not previously chosen.
Examples of who can be nominated
Any individual can be nominated who demonstrates selfless dedication to a healthy East Region community above and beyond their regular employment, but examples include:
Volunteers (healthcare, civic, community, fire and rescue)
Volunteers from hospitals and community clinics
Members of service clubs
Members of advocacy or policy organizations
Youth volunteers (health-related)
