Dear Friends and Colleagues:

We all search for heroes to emulate in our lives. We are fortunate at NCH Healthcare Systems to have 600 such “heroes” in our midst—the members of our medical staff, whose life’s work is dedicated to serving the community. In 2001, Judge Christine Greider, who was co-chair of the NCH Hospital Ball Committee, came up with the idea of recognizing a Physician of the Year. And so, for the past eight years, our physicians have nominated potential recipients of this coveted award which recognizes all that is noble about the medical profession.
