“North Texas COVID-19 Heroes” is now live – check out our healthcare heroes!

Thank you, healthcare heroes! The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation announced today its “North Texas COVID-19 Heroes” campaign is now available. The official booklet and video were posted online today.

“We would like to thank the hospitals for honoring so many of our healthcare heroes,” said Sally Williams, Workforce Center Director at the DFWHC Foundation. “We received more than 300 submissions from hospitals across North Texas and our team worked throughout this month to make sure we honored every single one of them. This is a tribute to the sacrifice and dedication our healthcare workforce has displayed over the past year.”

The DFWHC Foundation announced in June it would postpone the 2021 Employee of the Year Luncheon to 2022 and replace the event with its virtual “North Texas COVID-19 Heroes” campaign. For the past year, hospitals have submitted individuals and teams displaying uncommon dedication during the pandemic.

“The efforts of our hospital employees during the COVID-19 pandemic have been amazing,” said Jen Miff, president of the DFWHC Foundation. “With our healthcare heroes continuing to work tirelessly during these difficult months, the booklet and video is the least we can do to offer our thanks. We would also like to thank our sponsors for making this project possible.”

The booklet is 140-plus pages detailing more than 350 hospital employees from 44 North Texas hospitals. Each employee’s accomplishment is detailed.

The campaign was sponsored by:
Hall Render;
Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.;
Baylor Scott & White Health;
