Nominations Sought for Charitable Hospital Programs that ‘Give Back'

A new national awards program, called the Hospital Charitable Service Awards, has been created to celebrate and encourage the spread of the nation’s most innovative charitable hospital programs.

Atlanta, GA (Vocus) May 27, 2010 -- A new national awards program, called the Hospital Charitable Service Awards, has been created to celebrate and encourage the spread of the nation’s most innovative charitable hospital programs. Hospital nominations are currently being sought for the awards, which are sponsored by Atlanta-based Jackson Healthcare.

The focus of the awards program is to find, reward and share the stories of hospitals that consistently push beyond their core mission of providing essential healthcare services and generously give back to the communities they serve. The program also seeks to foster a collaborative spirit among hospitals to spread their successes to other communities and health systems.

“Our goal is to promote and support organizations setting new standards in their outreach efforts; hospitals that offer positive stories that capture the spirit of true care,” said Charles R. Evans, FACHE, who serves as the awards chairman. “Too much attention has been focused on what’s wrong with healthcare. It’s time to recognize and share what’s right.”

Nominee stories will be promoted through the awards website and social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Any hospital community program is eligible for nomination. A board of advisors, consisting of veteran healthcare executives, will use traditional community benefit activities as the basis for the awards. However, according to Evans, “We want to recognize and reward programs that go above and beyond the traditional definitions of community benefit and charity care – programs that identify and invest in tangible community needs.”

Hospitals interested in nominating one or more programs can learn more by visiting the awards website at
