The Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers is seeking nominations for the annual Marshall Medical Healthcare Hero Awards. The purpose of these awards is to honor those who epitomize the word “hero” in the delivery of healthcare in our community.

“This year, our committee has deemed it ‘The Year of the Unsung Hero,’” Andrea Oliver, director of the Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers, said. “They are hopeful to honor people who truly work behind the scenes and rarely get the recognition they deserve.”

Ideal nominees may be providers of healthcare (nurses, technicians, etc.), healthcare volunteers, or any contributor who is making a significant impact on the quality of healthcare in the Marshall County area. Through this award, the Foundation seeks to salute excellence, raise awareness, enhance the quality of healthcare and, of course, recognize deserving individuals within the healthcare industry.

Nominations may be submitted via mail to 2320 Homer Clayton Drive, Guntersville, AL 35976 or via email to foundation@mmcenters.com now through Nov. 20. The nomination form must include the nominator’s and nominee’s name, title, company and address as well as a brief descriptive narrative of 500 words or less. Each nomination will be judged on its own merits. The recipient of the award will be honored at the Sixth Annual Winter Ball benefiting the Marshall Cancer Care Center on Jan.18, hosted by the Marshall Women’s Guild.

For more information, please call the Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers at 256-571-8026 or visit foundationformmc.org.

Marshall Medical has been nothing short of incompetence. No way would I vote for them.

I know some good people that work there but overall it’s utter nonsense that’s spewed out of most of the doctors mouths. Especially the ER.
