About Healthcare Heroes

The 26th annual recognition of the extraordinary individuals and organizations that go above and beyond the call of duty every day.


Healthcare Heroes are the men and women who go above and beyond the call of duty everyday.

For more than 25 years, The Business Journal of Tri-Cities, TN/VA has honored these heroes on behalf of the business community they serve. Without healthy employees and customers, business cannot survive. Healthcare Heroes keep our region’s people and businesses well cared for.

Community Service Award:
