How can I or my organization be considered for the Health Care Heroes award?

While anyone can nominate, we recommend nominations come from a senior leader in the organization. You can fill out the online form come December, which will be found on the Health Care Heroes Award landing page. At least one letter of recommendation is required.

Can I save the nomination or application forms while I’m working on them?

Unfortunately you cannot at the moment, but we’re working to fix that. In the meantime, we suggest either filling out the forms on a separate sheet of paper first or be prepared to spend some time on the forms.

What are thee judges looking for when selecting the Health Care Heroes Honorees?

It is essential that the candidate or organization has made a significant impact on health care in the Greater Rochester Area. It is helpful to have at least one letter of recommendation from someone that can speak to this.

Should I have a letter of recommendation sent?

Letters of recommendation are required for our judges to make their decisions. Up to 3 letters of recommendations can be emailed to [email protected]. The letter will be paired to your application when it is received.

Can I buy a table?

You will be able to buy a table of 10.

Are children allowed?

Children are allowed. After purchasing tickets, please email [email protected] to inform us that one or more of your guests are children so we can make appropriate menu and seating adjustments.

Do the winners sit with their guests at the luncheon?

The winners sit with their guests during lunch and throughout the program.

Do the winners have to say something?

No speaking; the winners walk across the stage to accept their awards.

If I’m a winner, do I need to purchase a ticket?

You do not need to purchase a ticket for yourself if you are an honoree. All other attendees must purchase a ticket.

Can I buy an ad in the publication?

Please contact Suzanne Fischer-Huettner to place an add or purchase a sponsorship package.
