Now thats the Spirit
’07 Excellence competition received 110 entries
This years competition drew 110 entries, up from 98 last year. Modern Healthcare announced this years award competition on Aug. 6. The deadline for submissions was Sept. 24. Per editorial policy, award sponsors are not involved in the judging and determination of award recipients.
To assist Modern Healthcare in making the selections, the magazine enlisted the help of five judges, all of whom are affiliated with past Spirit of Excellence Award recipients.
Modern Healthcare would like to thank the judges for their insight and expertise. We also would like to thank the following people for helping make this years competition another success: Rebecca Mielcarski, special projects/research editor at Modern Healthcare, who coordinated the award competition; Stacie Williams, a copy editor at Modern Healthcare, who assigned and edited all the recipient profiles; and Ed Finkel, a freelance writer and frequent Modern Healthcare contributor based in Evanston, Ill., who wrote the profiles. Finkel can be reached at [email protected]
To contact Sodexho, call Lynne Adame, director of communications, at 860-325-1290; or send her an e-mail at [email protected]
Look for an announcement of the 2008 Spirit of Excellence Awards competition next year in Modern Healthcare. The winners and honorable mentions will be profiled in a special section of the Dec. 15, 2008 issue. Thank you.
