MENOMONEE FALLS – Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Community Memorial Hospital is now accepting nominations for the 2015 Spirit of Caring award. Community members are encouraged to submit nominations for two separate awards, including the Community Service and Excellence in the Medical Profession. Both recognize exceptional physicians for their achievements.

The Spirit of Caring Award - Community Service recognizes physicians of Community Memorial Hospital medical staff who invest in their community through volunteer activities. Community service may be any type of volunteer activity by the doctor that benefits the community and is not directly job-related.

The Spirit of Caring Award - Excellence in the Medical Profession recognizes physicians of the Community Memorial Hospital medical staff who have advanced or made significant contributions to the medical profession locally, regionally and/or nationally through service, leadership and practice. This award is open to physicians who have been on staff at the hospital for at least five years and have not received a Spirit of Caring Award within the past five years.

Anyone may nominate a Community Memorial Hospital physician for either award. Physicians nominated must be in good standing on the Froedtert & MCW Community Memorial Hospital medical staff.

The deadline for nominations is Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015. Award recipients will be announced on Doctor’s Day on Monday, March 30, 2015.
