Values in Action Awards
Mission Hospital presents the Values in Action Awards annually to honor
four individuals who each embody our core values: Dignity, Service, Excellence
and Justice. Hundreds of deserving candidates are nominated by their peers
for going above and beyond to provide an extra measure of care or service.
A committee determines one winner in each of our four core values.
