3 HARTFORDBUSINESS.COM | NOVEMBER 1, 2021 D uring the pandemic, our region's healthcare workers have had to call on their reserves of resiliency and resourcefulness. On the front lines of caring for those with the virus, they have witnessed not only how it affects patients, but patients' loved ones as well. They have delivered care for a medical condition with circumstances like we've never seen before as a society — its long-term effects still unknown — all while providing other ongoing medical services with professionalism and striving to meet their organization's standards of quality care. Ironically, they were working to heal others while wondering if they themselves could be harmed. Donning personal protective equipment to avoid contracting COVID-19, following Centers for Disease Control guidelines, these workers put their own health at risk, an additional stressful aspect of their jobs. Broad-scope perspective But Hartford Business Journal's Health Care Heroes awards aren't only a nod to the more traditional physicians and nurses directly delivering care. We also recognize the dedication and innovation of other industry players, such as those creating COVID-19 vaccination initiatives for the uninsured or guiding research foundations' invaluable achievements. Leaders in areas of mental health, supply chain and pharmacy education are other examples of crucial, key players that ultimately shape quality health care for us all. These Health Care Heroes came to the attention of Hartford Business Journal in perhaps the most organic way possible: From those who work alongside them, or are impacted by their work. More than mere names plucked from headlines, the business community and public came forward to identify these individuals to our editorial team, which chose the winners. Our hope is that you will find inspiration in these pages as well as newfound appreciation for the expert medical talent here, in our healthcare organizations, universities, research facilities and nonprofits. We will be celebrating our winners at a special event Nov. 18, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Farmington Gardens in Farmington. We hope you will join us. Remember, we look to members of the community for our Health Care Heroes, so it's never too early to begin thinking of nominations for next year.
