WATCH: Brevard Heart Foundation selected healthcare professionals from across Brevard County to be honored during the Heart of a Hero Awards Gala at the Hilton Rialto in Melbourne. Cardiologist Dr. Kevin Campbell was on hand to present one of the evening’s top honors. Above, Campbell talked with Space Coast Daily’s Zach Clark and he summarized his topic: the role of selfless service in healthcare.
“It’s so important that we recognize the tireless and selfless service that everyone in the healthcare field has put forth. Yes, people are tired, but they come to work with a smile every day, particularly at Health First where I work, and I think it’s just so important for those who aren’t healthcare providers yet, those aspiring professionals, to see that, no matter how hard we work, no matter how long are the hours, we’re still happy, fulfilled people. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA — Brevard Heart Foundation honored healthcare professionals from across Brevard County during the Heart of a Hero Awards Gala April 7 at the Hilton Rialto in Melbourne.
The public wass invited to attend to support these amazing healthcare professionals who serve our community with compassion and dedication.
“Our local healthcare professionals have gone above and beyond to serve our friends, family, and neighbors,” said Diana Adams, Executive Director of Brevard Heart Foundation.
“They leave their families on a daily basis to take care of ours, and it is an honor to be able to share their stories and recognize them for everything they do for our community.”
Nominations for the Heart of a Hero Awards were open to the public and people were invited to share the stories of how local healthcare professionals made a difference in their lives or the lives of friends, family, or community members.
People from different fields and roles within the healthcare sector were nominated and it was exciting to read stories of doctors, nurses, hospice workers, program directors, and more being shared by those whom they have impacted.
Nomination stories often shared how friends or family members were amazed at the level of care as the committee reviewed and selected awardees, with representation from the private and public sectors and all across the Space Coast.
The Foundation’s mission is focused on supporting healthcare initiatives that meet identified needs in Brevard County, along with providing scholarships to healthcare students, and the board decided to expand their work to honor local healthcare professionals for the work they do on a daily basis that positively impacts lives in our community.
