Hospital Hero Awards

Our #HospitalHeroes

Now, more than ever. Thank you.

Rising to every challenge

This hospital week, we celebrate you, our heroes.

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 of the past year, 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

IHA’s Hospital Heroes program celebrates employees who have acted courageously in a crisis or who have selflessly served their hospitals and communities throughout their careers. At our 2022 Annual Meeting in October, IHA will recognize 10 hospital employees who exemplify the passion and purpose of the community hospital mission. Use the form below to submit nominations by Wednesday, June 1. Email Craig Borchard at IHA with questions.
