Commitment to Compassion award winners announced

For the fourth year, Louisville’s health care community is preparing to honor a group of special individuals who exhibit extraordinary compassion in their daily lives.

Compassionate LouisvilleThe Commitment to Compassion Award was created to honor people every year who exemplify true compassion in health care. The award winners deserve recognition for improving the lives of those around them, for inspiring and challenging others to be more compassionate.

This year’s outstanding group will be honored at the Commitment to Compassion Luncheon at the Muhammad Ali Center on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019.

The Commitment to Compassion Award was created four years ago, when Jill Bell, vice president and chief communications officer at Passport Health Plan, and Stephanie Barnett of ChooseWell Communities, along with members of the staff at Insider Louisville, came up with the idea of honoring health care professionals who show extraordinary compassion in their approach to their work, and their life.
