Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle won Best of Show Overall
The Mississippi Hospital Association’s Society for Health Care Marketing and Public Relations presented the 30th Annual Maggie Awards during an awards dinner on Nov. 2 at the MHA Conference Center in Madison. The Maggie Awards program recognizes outstanding marketing and public relations work submitted by professionals from the health care sector in Mississippi.
During the awards dinner, Lauren Rutland of Copiah County Medical Center was named the Junior Professional of the Year by the society.
This year, there were almost 90 entries submitted from hospitals, health systems and other health care organizations from across the state. Only the top two entries in each category win awards, and in order to receive a Maggie Award, an entry had to rank “excellent” in the judges’ scoring system. The Maggie Award gets its name from the magnolia flower featured on the top award. Out of the submitted entries, 22 Maggie Awards and 17 Awards of Excellence were selected.
Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle won Best of Show Overall for their HeartScore Screen Fundraising Event.
Forrest General Hospital won Best of Show Print for their A Lifetime of Caring Community & Annual Report and Best of Show Electronic for their My Next Heartbeat Campaign.
Other hospitals and systems honored during the awards center include King's Daughters Medical Center, Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services, Winston Medical Center, South Central Regional Medical Center, Copiah County Medical Center, Pine Belt Mental Healthcare Resources, OCH Regional Medical Center, and North Sunflower Medical Center.
