Healthcare Heroes

Each year, Inside Business recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations that are making a noteworthy difference in health care across Hampton Roads.

These awards epitomize the spirit embodied in the word “hero” for those delivering health care to our community. The goals of the program are to recognize excellence, promote innovation, encourage emulation of successful programs, educate the general public, contribute to the enhancement of the value and quality of health care, and to give recognition to those deserving.


Healthcare Heroes Awards

Here’s your chance to have them recognized with a 2020 Inside Business Health Care Heroes Award. Honoring those who are improving health care in Southeast VA.  Entries will be judged on documented accomplishments. 

The awards are presented to the honorees at a recognition event. Additionally, all honorees will be profiled in a special section that will be included in Inside Business and also distributed at the event. 

Winners will be profiled in an Inside Business special section, August 17, and recognized at an awards banquet this fall.
