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 13 we will continue the tradition of celebrating the region’s “Best of the Best” in healthcare at the 2014 MediStar Awards.
Since 2007 IGE Media, publisher 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, aging care, as well as announces the Physician and Nurse of the Year award.
