Posted at 1:40 PM, Apr 14, 2017

Clark County Medical Society (CCMS) is accepting nominations for the fifth annual Winged Heart Award now through May 5, 2017.

The award was created in 2013 by former CCMS President Dr. George Alexander to recognize nurses and health-related nonprofit organizations in Clark County that have gone above and beyond their line of duty.

Winged Heart Award nominees attend CCMS’ annual Presidential Installation Dinner & Awards Ceremony where winners are announced. The 63rd Presidential Installation Dinner & Awards Ceremony is being held June 10, 2017, at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. 

Nursing nominees must be currently affiliated with a local practice or hospital and must be providing a necessary service to patients on an inpatient or outpatient basis. A non-profit nominee must be a registered 501(c)(3) whose mission is to provide outstanding medical/health care work or to promote wellness within Clark County.

During the June 10 event, CCMS will recognize the recipients of the 2017 Rising Star Award, which recognizes exceptional Nevada medical students nominated by the deans of Nevada’s medical schools.

Staff or family members of the judging presidents are not eligible for nomination. Other rules and regulations may apply. Additional details are available at www.clarkcountymedical.org.
