Healthcare Design Extends Nomination Deadline For 2024 HCD 10, Rising Star Awards

Healthcare Design has extended the deadline for nominations for its 2024 professional recognition programs: The HCD 10 and Rising Star awards.

These annual awards celebrate industry members making an impact in our field. Nominations for both awards programs are now open.

The deadline for nominations has been extended to 5 p.m. PT on Friday, April 12.

The HCD 10 awards honor established professionals across 10 categories of nominees, including one for Outstanding Organization and one for Team MVP. The program aims to highlight the accomplishments of individuals who are advancing the healthcare design field.

The Rising Star program recognizes newcomers to healthcare design who have focused on this sector for fewer than 10 years and who are ready to become the industry’s next-generation leaders.
