St. Luke's Healer's Heart Award

CHI Memorial is now accepting nominations for the 4th annual St. Luke’s Healer’s Heart Award program to honor physicians and advanced practice providers who have significantly contributed to the advancement of CHI Memorial’s Mission and Core Values. The award ceremony will be held Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Rooms at CHI Memorial Hospital Chattanooga.

St. Luke was a native of Antioch and a frequent companion of St. Paul, who referred to him as “the beloved physician.” He is also credited with writing a Gospel and the book of Acts, which covers the earliest history of the Church after the earthly ministry of Jesus.  In his gospel we hear the parable of the Good Samaritan and the story of the one grateful leper who is a Samaritan.

The Mission and Core Values of CHI Memorial are lived out each day through our dedicated caregivers.  The St. Luke’s Healer’s Heart Awards are an opportunity to recognize and honor physicians and advanced practice providers who live our Mission, demonstrating Compassion, Inclusion, Integrity, Excellence and Collaboration in ways that inspire, touch and inform a deeper understanding and meaning for the practice of medicine as ministry.  

Nominations are due by Friday, September 16, 2022. Click here to review the nomination criteria. If you have any questions, please email
