Swope Health is proud to announce it has received The South Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Special 2021 Community Impact Hero Award.
“This is a special award to recognize healthcare professionals for their efforts during the pandemic,” said Vickie Wolgast, president of the South Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
The nominations were reviewed by a six-member Chamber committee, and then Chamber members and community leaders voted for the winners. The awards were presented at the Chamber’s Virtual Annual Meeting, Thursday, March 25, 2021. Jeron Ravin, President & CEO of Swope Health, accepted the award.
“Over the past year, we have tested more than 15,000 Kansas Citians for Covid-19,” said Ravin. “We’ll continue to fight against Covid-19 and serve the Kansas City community.”
Each year, the chamber seeks out nominations from the community and its members to recognize companies and volunteers who make the most impact in the region.
Nominations identify companies who make contributions to the community, in the form of donations to a non-profit or support in time or resources. The chamber also considers programs providing support to veterans, disabled persons, and ex-convicts, as well as initiatives in mentoring, job skills training and entrepreneurial efforts.
