Keith Granger is the CEO of Flowers Hospital in Dothan. He says, "I think generally people look at heroes and think of some big act. In general we found that most of the big acts are not what we're recognizing today. What we're recognizing is the lifetime commitments, it's the thousands of acts over their career of being kind and generous and giving to others."
There are seven state hospital regions in Alabama.
Next month, an awards banquet will be held, where one overall winner from each region will be selected, as their regions ‘Healthcare Hero.’
