"Access to quality healthcare is one of the most important factors in determining a community's quality of life," said Dr. Dan Kaufman, President & CEO of the Gwinnett Chamber. "Not only does it affect every individual on a personal level, but it is also considered a strategic economic development tool for attracting companies to relocate to or expand and invest in Gwinnett County. A readily available, well-trained workforce will have its pick of the best jobs in Gwinnett's healthcare arena. For fast growth communities such as ours, it is critical to have a quality healthcare system with state-of-the-art-technology supporting it.
"We are honored that we have been nominated by colleagues and the community. We are fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful sector and are excited to be a part of the event," said Sam Dawkins, Vice President of Communications at PruittHealth.
Designations in the following areas will be given: Community Leadership, Corporate Achievement, Executive Administrator, Healthcare Agency, Healthcare Professional, Physician of the Year and Volunteer Service.
