Dr. Craig Thompson Receives Hospital Hero Award from Iowa Hospital Association

September 25, 2023 in News, Regional Medical Center

Dr. Craig Thompson, Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Services Medical Director, has received one of the Iowa Hospital Association’s Hospital Hero awards for demonstrating exceptional commitment to care and service. Dr. Thompson was one of 10 employees of Iowa hospitals to receive the 2023 recognition.

Since 2007, the Hospital Heroes program has celebrated employees who have acted courageously in a moment’s crisis or who have selflessly served their hospitals and communities throughout their careers. Hospital Heroes are nominated by their peers – more than 30 nominations were submitted this year – and award recipients are selected by other state hospital associations. Hospital Heroes are recognized during the Iowa Hospital Association’s annual meeting in October.

Dr. Thompson’s impact is deep, from delivering new life into this world to extending his compassionate touch to emergency crises and end-of-life care. He has a legacy of service, touching lives with his remarkable skill and reassuring demeanor. This extraordinary physician has not only impacted the lives of those he cared for but made a lasting impact on the field of medicine with over 40 years of devoted service. 

On behalf of everyone at Regional Medical Center, we congratulate Dr. Thompson on a deserving award and recognition. 

The Iowa Hospital Association is a voluntary membership organization representing hospital and health system interests to business, government and consumer audiences. 117 community hospitals are association members.
