Nominations are now open for the 2023 Winged Heart Awards
The Clark County Medical Society (CCMS) is now accepting nominations for its tenth annual Winged Heart Awards. Established in 2013 by former CCMS President Dr. George Alexander to honor nurses, health-focused nonprofit organizations, and first responders in Clark County.
The public can submit nominations through April 30th at: https://tinyurl.com/WingedHeartAwards.
“Clark County Medical Society wants to engage our community as we thank the nominees for their service and dedication to raising the bar of healthcare for us all,” states Dr. George Alexander. “We encourage residents of Southern Nevada to submit a nomination for someone who has made an impact on their life.”
While many healthcare awards honor doctors and executives, the Winged Heart Awards ask the community to nominate outstanding nurses, health-related nonprofit organizations and first responders. The nominations are then reviewed by the Clark County Medical Society’s immediate past president, current president and president-elect to arrive at an honoree in each category
Criteria to be nominated are: Nurses currently affiliated with local practice or hospital and must provide a necessary service to patients on an inpatient or outpatient basis. A nonprofit nominee must be a registered 501(c)(3) whose mission is to provide outstanding medical/healthcare work and promotes wellness within Clark County. First responders must be currently working in Clark County.
Winged Heart Award nominees will be honored during the CCMS 69th Annual Presidential Installation and Awards Ceremony on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
This year’s Winged Hear Awards are proudly presented by Pediatrix, who regularly demonstrate their commitment to our community by providing optimal patient care.
