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.
