The Chattanooga Times Free Press and Edge Magazine, in partnership with the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society, will again honor individuals who are making a significant impact on the quality of health in the Chattanooga area at the second annual "Champions of Health Care" awards program in September.
Nominations are being sought through May 19 for outstanding persons or organizations in seven health care categories. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges in leadership roles in the local health care industry. One winner in each category will be announced at an awards luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 21, and profiled in the September issue of Edge magazine.
"Champions of Health Care truly recognizes individuals that are making an impact," said Bruce Hartmann, president of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. "It helps to increase awareness of the quality of health care in our community and gives us all a chance to celebrate those in the medical field who are dedicated to advancing the quality of life. "
In its inaugural year last fall, Champions of Health Care recognized Dr. Jackson Yium and Dr. Michael Carr with Lifetime Achievement awards, Dr. Mack Worthington and Dr. Coleman Arnold with physician awards, Tennessee Interventional and Imaging Associates with the Innovation in Health Care award, Project Access with the top Community Outreach award, Dr. Walter Puckett as the top Health Care Volunteer winner, Martha Weeks with the Administrative Excellence award, and Charlotte Smalley with the Nonphysician Practitioner award.
