Cherokee Uniforms recognizes healthcare professionals for service,
sacrifice and innovation
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Now celebrating five years of honoring the nation's healthcare heroes, Cherokee Uniforms announced today 10 winners of the 2007 Cherokee Inspired Comfort Award. Selected from over 1,000 nominations nationwide, the winners represent a cross-section of healthcare facilities, from VA medical centers and regional cancer centers to community hospitals and home hospice providers. Although each winner has their own distinct story about caring for others, all of them share the same mission day after day -- to provide the best care possible to those in need.
"Cherokee Uniforms is proud to honor these 10 outstanding individuals for their dedication, skill, compassion and devotion. This award was created to acknowledge healthcare professionals who often sacrifice their own desires to fulfill the needs of others," said Michael Singer, president and CEO of Cherokee Uniforms. "We hope the winners' stories will inspire all healthcare workers to continue giving their best. We also hope they encourage others to consider careers in this rewarding industry."
A panel of nurse leaders, former Cherokee Inspired Comfort Award recipients and Cherokee Uniforms professionals selected the honorees who were nominated for their exceptional service, sacrifice and innovation by colleagues, friends and family. Nominations were received in five categories: Advanced Practice Nurse, Registered Nurse, Licensed Practical Nurse/Licensed Vocational Nurse, Student Nurse and Non-Physician Healthcare Professional.
