CCHCF logoFor the last eight years, the Campbell County Healthcare Foundation's Black Cat Ball has been a formal venue to honor people working in healthcare-related fields who have made a difference in our community. An individual must show career excellence as well as volunteerism to qualify for the Outstanding Healthcare Awards.

Here are some examples that would qualify an individual to be nominated:

  • Medical doctors and/or doctors of osteopathy, dentists, optometrists, chiropractors, veterinarians (any healthcare professional with the title' doctor' in their credentials).
  • Nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, health educators, counselors, social workers.
  • Certified nurse assistants, occupational therapy assistants, physical therapy assistants, radiology technologists, lab technologists, personal trainers and clerical healthcare workers.
  • CEO's, vice presidents, directors, managers, clinic managers (leaders and managers who organize the flow of local healthcare).
  • Active community participant in the healthcare profession, service group, organization or task force, or active volunteer for a healthcare organization.

We encourage you to think about who has been influential in improving healthcare in Campbell County and deserves to be honored at this year's Black Cat Ball. If you wish to nominate a healthcare professional, you may download an application here (PDF). The nomination deadline is Thursday, July 31.
