Nominations Now Open for the Dr. Robert E. Murphy Spirit of Caring and Heart of a Hero Awards
The family of Robert E. Murphy, M.D., established two annual awards to recognize Children’s employees. The Robert E. Murphy, M.D., Spirit of Caring Nursing Award honors an outstanding nurse who provides exceptional care, and the Heart of a Hero Award recognizes a non-nursing staff member who demonstrates an exemplary work ethic and caring heart that contributes to service excellence at Children’s.
Robert E. Murphy, M.D., (1925-2005) dedicated his life to the health and well-being of children. These awards exemplify the qualities that he displayed in his own life as a legendary Omaha pediatrician, as well as those attributes he admired most in those with whom he worked. Nominators are asked to submit examples of how their nominee demonstrates service excellence, teamwork, respect, job skills and accountability. Nominations are open through Friday, Feb. 28.
Heart of a Hero Award Nomination Form
Award recipients will be announced in May. Each recipient will receive a $2,500 cash award, thanks to the generosity of the Murphy family, as well as a commemorative plaque and recognition on a display in the atrium balcony.
