Pinnacle Awards

Each year, WHPRMS recognizes our members’ excellence and success in the practice of healthcare public relations and marketing through a judged awards program.

In 2024, WHPRMS is collaborating with ISHMPR, the Illinois Society for Healthcare Marketing and Public Relations, to host a joint awards program called the Pinnacle Awards. All winning entries from both states will be honored during an awards banquet at the Bi-State annual conference on October 3, 2024, in Lake Geneva. 

June 28, 2024 is the entry deadline.

Leadership Recognition

The Leadership Recognition Program is designed to reward members who excel in their profession. Any member that meets the program criteria is encouraged to apply for this recognition. The program offers three tiers: Certification, Accreditation and Fellowship status. Fellows are the highest tier and are best defined as professionals in healthcare marketing and public relations who demonstrate exceptional competence and ability in the areas of leadership, problem solving, innovation and creativity, and organizational impact.


Professional Excellence Award

The Professional Excellence Award is a great way to recognize a colleague who has earned the respect of others.

If there is a person you admire in the healthcare industry, if they have been your mentor, your confidant, your beacon in the fog, or perhaps it is just blatantly obvious they really know their stuff― Then nominate them for WHPRMS’ Professional Excellence Award.

Only one individual is awarded this distinguished honor every year!

This person should be a leader inside and outside their organization. They should be a WHPRMS member in good standing and a seasoned professional who has demonstrated and shared their knowledge, advancing the principles of communications, marketing and public relations within the healthcare industry.
