Grossmont Healthcare District Healthcare Heroes Awards

Grossmont Healthcare District holds an annual awards luncheon to recognize and reward front-line volunteer caregivers and other individuals who help advance the delivery of healthcare and improve the quality of life for East County residents. The District recognizes those individuals and providers who go beyond their scope of work voluntarily to inspire others by giving extraordinary care and positively affecting the health and welfare of those living in the District’s boundaries. 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 individual volunteers or volunteers of organizations who demonstrate selfless dedication to produce measurable outcomes that provide for a healthy East County community. Employees of healthcare organizations are eligible, contingent on the nomination being reflective of their 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 County community above and beyond their regular employment, but examples include:
Volunteers (healthcare, civic, community, fire and rescue)
Health care educators
Volunteer transportation
Health professionals
