Modern Healthcare is pleased to announce that reporter Joe Carlson has won two prestigious journalism awards for his Nov. 30, 2009, cover story, “Trauma to the system.” The story details efforts by some hospitals to combat violent crime in their communities before more victims show up in their emergency rooms.
Carlson wins two national awards
The National Institute for Health Care Management named Carlson as the recipient of its 16th annual Health Care Print Journalism Award for trade publications. The NIHCM Foundation will honor Carlson and Modern Healthcare at a banquet to be held in Washington on May 17.
Separately, the Association of Health Care Journalists named Carlson the recipient of its Award for Excellence in Health Care Journalism. Carlson was the first-place winner in the trade publication category.
Please join us in congratulating Carlson for these honors. They're just two more reasons why Modern Healthcare is the industry's best-read healthcare business news publication.
