March of Dimes Heroes in Action Award 2022

Methodist Health System is a proud sponsor of the March of Dimes (MOD) Heroes in Action Awards.

Formerly known as Nurse of the Year, the program was expanded in 2021 to include health care providers outside of the field of nursing.

In lieu of an in-person celebratory banquet, Heroes in Action winners were recognized in surprise celebrations with their peers, leadership and families. Two Methodist staff members were selected as finalists across 14 categories, and one was honored with a Heroes in Action Award.
