Healthcare Heroes Awards

Central Penn Parent presents the HealthCare Hero Awards to honor those who epitomize the word "hero" in the delivery of health care to the community. Through these awards we seek to salute excellence, encourage innovation, offer examples of best practices for others to emulate, raise awareness in the community, enhance the quality of health care and, of course, recognize deserving individuals and organizations within the industry.

Finalists and nominators will be notified by letter in the middle of November. Question? Please contact Emily Winslow at emilyw@cpbj.com or 717-236-4300.
