NMC Earns Four Communications Awards
Northwestern Medical Center earned four communication awards from the New England Society of Healthcare Communicators. The awards were part of the 2010 Lamplighter Awards which were presented at the NESHCo Spring Conference on May 25.
NMC won two awards for the photography in its “We Do That Here” campaign. Photographer Daria Bishop’s image of the Jarvis family, from the story of the US soldier in Iraq who participated in his birth at NMC over the internet, won a Silver Award. Bishop’s image of Wendy Campbell holding her grandson, from the story on breast cancer survival, won an Award of Excellence.
NMC won a Silver Award in the category of Recruitment for the work NMC Human Resources has done with Brandthropology, including our “Work. Life. Balance.” campaign and the effectiveness of an increased emphasis on online communications.
NMC also won a Silver Award in the category of Special Purpose Publications for the new Room Service Menus designed by Messenger Print & Design in collaboration with staff from NMC Community Services and NMC Restaurant & Catering. The award presenter remarked that the designers had created “visually appealing menus that made even a dreaded liquid diet look appetizing.”
“It’s always energizing to have our peers at the New England level celebrate our work,” said Jonathan Billings, NMC’s Director of Planning & Community Services. “These awards are particularly satisfying because the projects represent a great deal of collaboration between NMC departments and our partners in the business community.”
