Last year, we saw those working in healthcare put to the test. From enforcing heightened restrictions to finding themselves at the firing line of tense emotions, our healthcare workforce has remained vigilant and resilient in ensuring that we are all healthy, safe and well-cared for. In the face of everything, our healthcare heroes stayed in an arduous profession to continue caring for Granite Staters who needed help – and above all – hope.

We're looking for sponsors who can help us continue this effort to thank our healthcare workforce while sharing their stories of hope, resilience and dedication. 

Sponsorships will cover two rounds of healthcare hero recognitions - one planned for September 2022 and a second in May 2023.

How it works

Nomination timeline: The 2022 nominations process is scheduled to open in the fall. 

Who can be nominated: Any New Hampshire resident working throughout the healthcare system (nurses, LNAs, cooks, maintenance technicians, dentists, etc.)

Selection process: The NH Healthcare Heroes board of volunteers will review the nominations and select seven winners (one winner for each of the seven regions in the state) along with two runners-up. We will then profile the winners in interviews to be shared with their employers and through social media, local media outlets and healthcare associations. 

What the heroes get: Healthcare Heroes will be honored during a pinning ceremony with media and their employers and will also receive a customized swag bag filled with donations from our sponsors.  

The goal

To recognize these amazing heroes and to encourage others to consider a healthcare career in New Hampshire.  

We are soliciting sponsors for swag bag items and donations to continue the effort in telling the stories of those who do so much for all of us.
