MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Heritage Provider Network (HPN), one of the nation's leading physician-led managed care organizations, announces that nominations are open for the fourth annual Heritage Healthcare Innovation Awards. The awards, which are presented with Crain's Custom, a brand story-telling division of Crain's New York Business, will showcase innovators who have most improved the access to and quality of affordable healthcare in the communities they serve in the greater New York area.
"Recognizing and honoring extraordinary healthcare innovation and rising healthcare stars throughout the New York metropolitan area for a fourth year promises opportunities for us at HPN and Crain's New York Business to once again share significant insights and groundbreaking healthcare advances with all New Yorkers," said Dr. Richard Merkin, Founder and CEO of HPN.
"It's an honor to present the Heritage Healthcare Innovation Awards for the fourth year," said Mary Kramer, Group Publisher for Crain's New York Business. "If past honorees are any measure, this year's awardees will have the potential to benefit millions of New Yorkers."
"Leadership, a passion for better, a sense of urgency, tell me why not, do it now. This is what you see from New York nominees and winners, large and small, in the Heritage Healthcare Innovation Awards. People and organizations that refuse to be satisfied with the status quo. Creating real solutions that improve health, care and cost for thousands of New Yorkers when they need that help the most," said Mark Wagar, President, Heritage Medical Systems.
