ASHP CEO Award for Courageous Service Recognizes All ASHP Members
Last week at the ASHP Summer Meetings & Exhibition, I had the distinct honor of awarding the 2022 CEO Award for Courageous Service to the entire ASHP membership who collectively have gone above and beyond to care for patients, colleagues, and communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Established in 2000, the CEO Award for Courageous Service recognizes individuals or groups of individuals who go beyond the call of duty to serve patients under emergency conditions or in times of natural disaster or other catastrophic events.
The past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic have required all of you to perform in an environment unprecedented in our lifetime. In addition to your professional responsibilities, many of you have been caring for ill family members and friends, grieving those lost to the pandemic, and often dealing with difficult economic situations. You have been caring for hospitalized and ambulatory COVID patients, in addition to giving vaccinations and working to establish vaccine confidence in your communities. You have witnessed and experienced extraordinary levels of occupational stress in healthcare.
Through it all, you have persevered and maintained an unwavering commitment to your patients and colleagues. I have been amazed at the level of dedication and resiliency you have demonstrated in the face of overwhelming demands, stress, and uncertainty.
Please take a moment to view this video which celebrates this very special recognition.
Thank you again to all of our members. On behalf of the ASHP Board of Directors and staff, we offer our sincere gratitude for all that you do each and every day for your patients, healthcare, and our profession.
