Grateful patient families of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital held their sixth annual Ambassador Choice Awards event and honored the doctors, nurses and caregivers who provided exceptional health care for their children.

The event is part of the Glennon Ambassadors Program, designed for grateful families who want to “give back” to the hospital through service, stewardship or peer-to-peer support. The ceremonies began with a cocktail reception, followed by an Oscar-like video presentation honoring each of the nominees, including testimonials from grateful families and patients. The Glennon Ambassador team reviews hundreds of nominations and selects the winners. Caregivers were notified of their nominations via mail, and winners were presented with their award from a grateful patient family member the night of the event.
