Meet the 2022 finalists for the Business Journal’s Health Care Heroes awards

The Phoenix Business Journal is once again preparing to honor some of the Valley’s most selfless leaders in the health care industry. The annual Health Care Heroes award event recognizes not only the excellence of those working directly in the medical field such as physicians and nurses but also administrators, educators and volunteers. This year’s Health Care Heroes nominees were judged by those in the profession and the Valley business community.

The winners will be unveiled on Thursday, Aug. 18 during a morning awards presentation, set for 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Arizona State University Health Futures Center at 6161 E. Mayo Blvd. in Phoenix. Click here to buy tickets. The event is presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona.

Receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award is Susan Gerard, District 3 director, at Valleywise Health. Gerard has been a champion for public health care in the state of Arizona for nearly 30 years.
