The Mississippi Hospital Association’s Society for Health Care Marketing and Public Relations presented the 27th Annual Maggie Awards during an awards dinner on Nov. 6 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.
This year, there were 75 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, 17 Maggie Awards and 19 Awards of Excellence were selected.
Winston Medical Center won Best of Show Overall for their Home is Where the Heart Is t-shirt.
King's Daughters Medical Center won Best of Show Print for their Wellness Views magazine.
