Awarding unsung heroes of healthcare from across the world


11 April 2016 – Iselin, NJ – Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, announces the kick-off of its fourth annual Ansell Cares H.E.R.O. [Heal, Educate, Reach, Overcome] Nurse Service Award, which recognizes nurses who have made lasting impressions on their peers, their patients, their profession, and their communities.

Every day, in every corner of the world, nurses create a healing and comforting environment, while administering medications, dressing wounds, listening carefully, and finding solutions to make each patient’s life a little better. Too often, their contributions go unrecognized. Ansell is honored once again to sponsor and celebrate the H.E.R.O. nurses who selflessly dedicate their lives to improving the level of care provided within our healthcare facilities.

“The Ansell Cares H.E.R.O. Nurse Service Award was established as a way to demonstrate our appreciation and admiration for nurses, their professionalism, dedication, and compassion,” says Anthony López, President and General Manager, Medical Global Business Unit at Ansell. "Nurses are selfless heroes, and each year the Ansell Cares H.E.R.O. nominees personify their commitment to providing a remarkable patient experience and to improve the lives of patients.”
