The awards are a way for us to recognize the endless effort and hard work of these fantastic health care professionals. These individuals go above and beyond their normal job descriptions to provide professional, caring services and enhance their client's life quality. Their work is often difficult and thankless, and the Coronavirus pandemic made their jobs more challenging and dangerous. We are so very thankful for everything they have done to earn these awards.
