The Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Award (NHEA) has announced the opening of nominations for NHEA 2021. This was made known by Dr. Wale Alabi, Project Director, NHEA.
According to Dr. Alabi, the theme for NHEA 2020 is ‘Celebrating the Healthcare Heroes’. He said the LOC hopes to continuously use the platform presented by this award to celebrate all those who have contributed in one way or the other to help our nation battle the healthcare challenges of 2020 which were further exacerbated by COVID-19.
He advises various stakeholders to visit the award website, www.nigeriahealthawards.com.ng to make their nominations. Nomination will close on midnight of Saturday, May 22 2021, while the event will take place on Friday, June 25 2021, at the Convention Centre, Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. Nominations can be made for corporate or individual categories by any member of the public. You can either nominate online or download the nomination form.
“NHEA is the Oscar of Nigeria healthcare awards. In the last seven years the award has grown to become a point of reference in the industry. We would continue to do our best in order not to abuse the confidence placed on us. Moreover, we were unable to hold the award in 2020 due to the challenging situation presented by the ravaging corona virus then. With new improvement and present level of technology, we believe we are in a better position to hold the event this year.” Says Dr. Alabi.
Moses Braimah, NHEA Director of Marketing, Communication & Strategy also spoke on the commencement of NHEA 2021 nominations. “We are expecting about 30% increase in the nominations for NHEA 2020 due to growing awareness and acceptance of the award by various stakeholders. Furthermore, the award focuses on outstanding performances, creation of new business models, recognition of those who embrace new trends, market leadership and inspirational performance amongst others.”
