It’s back! Foundation’s 25th Annual Employee of the Year Luncheon set for April 19

It’s back! After a three-year absence due to the pandemic, the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation’s 25th Annual Employee of the Year Luncheon is set to return on Wednesday, April 19, at the Hurst Conference Center. This year’s event, themed “Celebration of Service!”, will honor hospitals employees from across North Texas with 16 recipients to be announced.

Christine Cashen, an energetic and lively motivational speaker, will serve as this year’s keynote. Cashen comes highly recommended to the DFWHC Foundation specifically for this event. For more than 20 years, Cashen has shared her expertise on conflict resolution, stress management and cultivating a happier and more productive workplace, a crucial message that could not come at a better time.

Author of the award-winning books “THE GOOD STUFF: Quips & Tips on Life, Love, Work and Happiness” and “It’s YOUR Business: Good Stuff for Your Personal, Professional and Funny Business,” Cashen’s engaging presentation has received rave reviews and she was recently honored with an induction into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame.

For over two decades, the DFWHC Foundation’s Employee of the Year Luncheon has honored more than 1,250 exceptional hospital employees. In the fashion of an awards show, the luncheon serves as a salute to the North Texas hospital workforce with recipients announced at the event and asked to come to the stage to receive their honor.

“Each year we make a request for nominees from member hospitals and are amazed by the quality of employees submitted,” said Jen Miff, president of the DFWHC Foundation. “This luncheon is designed to be a memorable afternoon for these nominees, and we hope the recognition makes a direct, positive impact on the morale of our North Texas hospital workforces.”

Awards to be presented include:

• Employee of the Year;
• Volunteer of the Year;
• System Employee of the Year;
• Physician of the Year;
• Preceptor of the Year;
• the Rex McRae Scholarship.

Nominees are separated into four categories including hospitals with 1-99 beds, hospitals with 100-250 beds, hospitals with 251-499 beds and hospitals with more than 500 beds. Two recipients are selected from each category.

Deadline to submit nominees is February 24, 2023. One nominee is allowed in each category per hospital. Nominee forms can be found here.

Sponsorships and tickets will be available later this month.
