Bon Secours Associate Pam Phillips and co-worker Helen Anderson were honored to represent Bon Secours Health System in Hampton Roads when recognized for the “Health Care Hero” award by Inside Business (a regional newspaper). During an annual recognition ceremony they were honored for their efforts in organizing education and establishing protocols for healthcare workers involved with caring for local victims of human trafficking.

This is the seventh year Inside Business has recognized those in the health care industry who epitomize the word “hero.”

These awards were started to salute excellence, encourage innovation, offer examples of best practices, raise awareness in the community, enhance the quality of health care and recognize deserving individuals and organizations within the industry.

Each year we have asked the public to submit nominations and a panel of judges has helped us review those submissions to select those we honor. We realize there are many in the community deserving recognition and we hope these awards raise awareness of the heroic work of the health care professionals and volunteers in Hampton Roads.
