The work of hospital employees extends far beyond the wall of Rhode Island’s hospitals. They are present at the most critical time in people’s lives – birth, death, times of happiness, as well as pain and sorrow. They touch people’s lives with their heart and their hands, offering hope, support, and relief from suffering.

These dedicated professionals do not see themselves as extraordinary. But the contributions these individuals make in the lives of their patients, their organizations and the communities they serve are immeasurable. We owe these men and women the deepest debt of gratitude.

Hospital employees throughout the state are honored at our "Hospital Heroes" event, an annual awards ceremony held by the Hospital Association of Rhode Island. Employees of the year from HARI's member hospitals are recognized by the HARI board of trustees for exemplary performance and dedication to health care. The honorees are an example of the hard-working determined employee who is an inspiration for everyone: supervisors, subordinates, peers and patients.
