Paying tribute to the largest profession in the Springfield metro area, the Health Care Champions event evolved out of a partnership with the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce over the past four years. This year, SBJ will honor people in the following categories:

• Top Doctors
Honoring southwest Missouri doctors, this category includes doctors who care for us from head to toe – neurosurgeons to pediatrists.

• Nurses
This award honors registered nurses on the front lines in areas such as emergency room nurse, pediatrics, NICU, nurse anesthetists and nurse midwives.

• Therapists
This category honors those health care workers who elevate our natural abilities – therapists. Examples include speech, physical, occupational, psychological and vision.

• Technicians
Often behind the scenes, this categories honors the people who keep the hospital wheels in motion. Technicians such as lab, X-ray, patient care, clinical laboratory, medical records, pharmacy and EMTs.

• Administrators
These honorees may never touch a patient, but they make the patient experience better. Examples include marketing, operating, case managers, ancillary services, vice presidents and others.

• Provider of the Year (Company or Organization)
This award honors the top provider company or organization in the southwest Missouri region. This category can include hospitals, health systems, clinics, dental and optometrist offices, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, and private practices.

• Company Wellness Program of the Year
This award highlights a local business that has established an outstanding corporate wellness program. This category honors a business or organization that promotes a culture of health for its own employees.

• Long-Term Care or Rehabilitation Facility of the Year
This award honors the top provider of long-term care or inpatient rehabilitation services.

Health Care Champions will be featured in a special publication and recognized in during an awards dinner.
