Modern Healthcare has won four international awards for editorial and design excellence.
The awards, from the Trade, Association and Business Publications International organization, recognize outstanding work by English-language business publications. Judges evaluated more than 700 editorial and design entries from around the globe in this years competition. Winners were announced this month.
Modern Healthcare won a Silver Award in the editors column category for the Nov. 6, 2006 editorial on the Medicare Advantage program headlined You must remember this by Managing Editor Neil McLaughlin. The magazine also garnered a Bronze Award in the technical article category for its Feb. 13, 2006 Special Report, headlined Making the cut, on advanced surgical technologies and whether they are worth the price tags. That story was written by freelance writer and former staff reporter Elizabeth Gardner.
The magazine earned two honorable mentions. One was for Modern Healthcares weekly news coverage in 2006, produced by News Editor Paul Barr and the editorial staff. The other, for front cover photography, cited the July 24, 2006 issue, headlined Murder or mercy? The cover, designed by graphics editors Keith Horist and Percy Marioni, featured arrest photos of the physician and two nurses accused by Louisiana authorities of euthanizing patients during the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
These awards follow the magazines win of 13 editorial and design awards from the American Society of Healthcare Publications Editors (May 14, p. 16).
