Hospital leaders postpone annual Employee of the Year Luncheon to 2023

Following discussions with DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) hospital leaders in February, it was decided to postpone the 25th Annual Employee of the Year Luncheon to next year. The event, originally scheduled for April 28, 2022, is expected to be rescheduled in April 2023 at the Hurst Conference Center.

“This was a very difficult decision for us,” said Jen Miff, president of the DFWHC Foundation. “The North Texas healthcare workforce has been bravely dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic now for over two years. It was decided in the best interest of the health of our workforce and community, that a large in-person event would not be a good idea at this time.”

For the past 25 years, the event has been held each April to honor exceptional hospital employees in North Texas. In the tradition of an awards show, winners are announced at the luncheon and asked to come to the stage to receive their award.

“We hope to move forward from the pandemic and shift our focus to recognizing our employees and volunteers for great work they do in the hospitals all of the time,” Miff said. “We will continue to look for ways to recognize and say ‘thank you’ to the great people who make a difference in our healthcare community. We appreciate your support in this effort.”
