Honoring healthcare’s unsung heroes

Social workers are some of the unsung heroes of healthcare; the caring, compassionate, patient advocates who, every day, keep potentially tragic outcomes from becoming commonplace. And the very fact that they can be described as unsung heroes is in itself, tragic.

Centers Health Care knows just how critical the role of the social worker is to the quality of healthcare we provide in the United States. In particular, we see how vital the social worker is to the elderly and underserved, the most vulnerable members of society, at one of the most vulnerable times in their lives. And we’re doing something to recognize them.

We’ve established the Centers Health Care Patient Advocacy Award, presented annually in March, in conjunction with National Social Work Month. Our goal is to raise the awareness of the noble work these professionals do, to inspire others to new heights, and to simply say “Thank you” to a group none of could do without.
