Winners in ABA’s First Tech and New Product Awards Ceremony Announced in San Francisco
The CenterLight Health System website was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Non-Profit category in The 10th Annual American Business Awards last night.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Monday, September 17 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. More than 200 nominees and their guests attended.
This year, for the first time, The American Business Awards were presented at two awards events: the traditional awards banquet in New York in June, and at a new tech and product awards event last night in San Francisco.
More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. CenterLight Health System is nominated in the Website category for Non-Profit Organizations.
The CenterLight Health System website was developed to provide information about the long-term residential and community-based healthcare services available to the community. Its goal is to educate individuals and families about the variety of CenterLight care options available by service, condition or location. It reflects the organization’s commitment to providing accurate health information to help individuals live well, stay healthy and make well-informed healthcare decisions. Everything CenterLight does is focused on one goal—improving patients’ quality of life. As such, the CenterLight website has already received industry awards from MarCom Awards, Web Health Awards, Web Marketing Association, National Mature Media Awards and Aster Awards.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from such a prestigious organization,” says Constance Tejeda, Vice President of Marketing and Public Affairs at CenterLight Health System. “We set out to create a website that is easy to use for those we serve and would be a good source of information for them, and to gain all these awards is an added bonus. I would like to congratulate our partner Humanize LLC and the rest of the marketing team who worked on this project.”
Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process this year.
“We’re delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives in the ABA’s new product and tech awards categories,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “It’s gratifying and inspiring to have received so many remarkable entries for this year’s competition. We look forward to staging this event in San Francisco for years to come.”
