Hospital Hero Awards

Our #HospitalHeroes

Now, more than ever. Thank you.

2023 IHA Annual Meeting Hospital Heroes Ceremony.


Rising to every challenge

We share our gratitude for the unsung heroes in our hospitals across Iowa. In less challenging times, you serve patients with expertise and compassion. But in the darker days and deeper difficulties during the pandemic, your strength, professionalism and dedication to patients — and to each other — has been nothing short of heroic. For all you’ve done, for all you do every day, we thank you.

Nominate your hospital hero

The Iowa Hospital Association's Hospital Hero Awards celebrate employees who have acted courageously in a crisis or who have selflessly served their hospitals and communities throughout their careers. At our annual meeting in October, the Iowa Hospital Association recognizes 10 hospital employees who exemplify the passion and purpose of the community hospital mission. Use the form below to submit nominations by Friday, June 14, 2024. Contact Roxanne Strike at 515-288-1955 with questions.
