The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association is committed to the advancement of women in the business of health care.

Last year we introduced a program to recognize the extraordinary contributions in the healthcare field by women in the St. Louis area. The 2016 Health Care Accomplishment Recognition Awards (HCARA) were presented at an event that attracted hundreds of women and men to see their colleagues and other remarkable women honored.

I am pleased to announce that the 2017 HCARA program is now accepting nominations for women in all areas of health care including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, providers, payers, science, healthcare IT, professional services, government, and non-profits. Look around your workplace, your social network, and your community; if you know of a local woman who is truly making a difference for health care in our region, please nominate her.

This is a unique opportunity to recognize an outstanding woman within the St. Louis metropolitan region.

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized for their:

  • Outstanding contribution to healthcare that improves the quality of life for others within the metro St. Louis area?

  • Or someone who has set an example to other women through her dedication and passion in the field of healthcare?

  • Or someone who has demonstrated a desire to contribute to her organization, the industry, or to the local healthcare community as a volunteer?

  • Or someone who has shown a commitment to mentoring other women in healthcare?

Don’t miss this opportunity to nominate them for this outstanding recognition award. It only takes a few minutes!

The honorees will be recognized at an awards luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 28th, 2017 at the Ritz Carlton in Clayton. Please click the link below to complete your nomination and find out the details of this fabulous event. Nominations are due Friday, May 19th.

Submit your candidate for the prestigious 2017 Healthcare Accomplishment Recognition Award.
