The MediStar Awards
Where the region's healthcare “stars” align for one night.
What does an internationally acclaimed expert in heart transplants and ventricular assist devices have in common with a health and life science incubator? Or a state-of-the-art biomedical research facility with a cultural and linguistics services program? What does a pediatric endocrinologist share with a broad coalition of more than 100 organizations working to improve Kentuckians’ health and healthcare coverage? That’s easy. They are all former MediStar Award Winners.
On May 21 we continued the tradition of celebrating the region’s “Best of the Best” in healthcare at the 2013 MediStar Awards.
Since 2007 IGE Media, publishers of Medical News and Medical News For You, has recognized excellence in the business of healthcare at the exclusive MediStar Awards, which honors eight healthcare professionals for their achievements in advocacy, innovation, education, leadership, design, humanity and meeting consumer needs, as well as announces the coveted Physician of the Year award.
