Each year, the Business Journal and its partners honor professionals across the region who work in health care and related fields. These individuals and their organizations frequently go beyond the call of duty for their communities and professions and in service to others.

The heroes were honored in a special, in-person event Thursday night at the Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston.

Profiles and photos of each honoree will be presented in the Dec. 13 edition of the Charleston Regional Business Journal
