Hawaii Healthcare Heroes

Who is your Hawaii Healthcare Hero?

A Hawaii Healthcare Hero is an extraordinary healthcare worker who went above and beyond to care for you or a loved one in a way that you’ll always remember.

Who is your Hawaii Healthcare Hero? Was it…

  • The ER worker who saved your keiki’s life?
  • The nursing home aide who patiently fed your dad during the confusion of his dementia?
  • The hospice worker who eased your grandma’s distress?
  • The hospital housekeeper who smiled at you day after day when you really needed it?
  • The nurse who came to your home to help you recover after your stroke?
  • The medical equipment provider who came in on a Sunday so you could be discharged from the hospital with your wheelchair?
  • The paramedic who re-started your heart?
  • The dialysis nurse who has helped to keep you alive?
  • Or the physical therapist who helped you heal after your accident?


Sponsorships for the 2020 HAH Awards and Scholarship Gala are now available for those who would like to recognize talented and compassionate professionals working in Hawaii’s healthcare sector.

As in past years there are two sponsorship types from which to choose: Media sponsorships, which make possible the public call for nominations for the only patient-nominated awards program in the nation, and offer tv, radio, newspaper and online exposure; and Gala sponsorships, which support the gala in honor of the awardees.

Sponsorship levels, benefits, and reservation form can be seen here.

The deadline for Gold, Diamond and Silver sponsorships are April 15. The deadline for Ruby, Emerald and Pearl sponsorships are August 18.

HAH thanks its sponsors for their generosity and support. Because of that support, the Hawaii Healthcare Heroes awards are entering their seventh year in recognizing the best healthcare providers in the state, and the Gala has grown into an annual industry celebration with close to 400 participants.
