Competing against some stiff competition, Mercy’s Dr. Robert Bergamini was one of four honorable mentions recognized as part of Modern Healthcare’s Community Leadership Award. The award honors health care leaders for their volunteer work. Entries were judged on three criteria including extent of departure from core job responsibilities, voluntary nature of the work outside of the organization and demonstrated positive impact of the work.
The field was narrowed to the top 10 finalists in August and opened for voting to select one winner and several honorable mentions. Fifty percent of the outcome was based on reader votes and the other 50 percent was controlled by Modern Healthcare. Thanks to community support through the voting period and his great work, Dr. Bergamini was honored for the impact he makes on the lives of children across Mercy.
