Cherokee Inspired Comfort Award Program Call for Nominations
LOS ANGELES, March 1 /PRNewswire/ — Cherokee Uniforms will now accept nominations through May 31, 2010 for its annual Inspired Comfort Award, a national program to honor healthcare professionals for their exceptional service, sacrifice and innovation. The award’s past 76 recipients embody the humanity and commitment that characterize the nation’s healthcare professionals – illustrating why those in healthcare are among America’s most trusted professionals.
“Our nation’s healthcare professionals are unsung heroes who are highly intelligent, skilled and compassionate, and they deserve our sincerest thanks for the outstanding work that they perform often in incredibly challenging conditions,” said Michael Singer, president and CEO of Cherokee Uniforms. “The Cherokee Inspired Comfort Award provides an opportunity for anyone to tell a healthcare professional that their work and efforts matter.”
A panel of nurse leaders, Cherokee professionals and former award recipients will choose winners who best meet the program’s criteria of exceptional service, sacrifice and innovation.
The grand prize winner in each category will receive an all-expense-paid Caribbean cruise for two. Additional winners in each category will receive all-expense-paid trips to a 2011 U.S. medical conference of each winner’s choice, an annual membership to their preferred clinical association and a $1000 medical wardrobe from Cherokee Uniforms. Additionally, those who nominated the grand prize winner in each category will also receive a $1000 Cherokee medical wardrobe.
