Employee of the Year Luncheon cancelled, virtual recognition planned in place of live event


IRVING, TX – As the North Texas healthcare community continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation, it was announced today the DFW Hospital Council Foundation’s (DFWHC) Employee of the Year Luncheon scheduled for September 16 will be cancelled. In place of the Luncheon, nominees and winners will be celebrated during a virtual presentation to be released September 21.

Nominations will remain open until Friday, August 7. The DFWHC Foundation has also added the new category “COVID-19 Heroes.” This specific category will honor all nominees online and will remain open to all submissions through January 31, 2020.

“Everyone is a winner in this new category,” said Jennifer Miff, president of the DFWHC Foundation. “Through the remainder of the year, separate from our virtual Employee of the Year program, we want to celebrate those who engaged in extraordinary efforts during this health crisis. This category is open to all hospital team members including clinicians, administrative/leadership and other support staff.”

Sponsorships for the Employee of the Year virtual program have been revamped and are still available.
