Presence Mercy Medical Center (PMMC) has honored Kane County Health Department (KCHD) with its inaugural Inspire Award for community service.
More than 40 community leaders, government officials and clinicians attended the event, which was held at PMMC this week. Barbara Jeffers-MPH, executive director of the Kane County Health Department, accepted the award on behalf of the department and its community partners in health.
The Inspire Award is presented annually to a community organization or leader who exemplifies the values that inspire the hospital’s community outreach. It also recognizes inspirational leadership that goes “above and beyond” the call of duty to advance the well-being of our neighborhoods.
According to Mike Brown, Regional President and CEO, KCHD is pivotal in improving the quality of life for our neighborhoods.
“Whether they are working on increased access to care or promoting wellness and preventing disease, they help support and create improvements in social and economic environments by facilitating holistic service delivery across our communities,” said Mike Brown.
