Mercy Honors

Mercy Honors is a celebration that combines Mercy Care's signature recognition events -- ReMEMBER Kate Aurelius Award and RISE Awards.

During a breakfast reception, we honor our community of members, advocates, providers and employees for their outstanding contributions and commitment to leadership, advocacy, health and wellness. 

 

ABOUT THE AWARDS

ReMEMBER Kate Aurelius Award
An annual recognition program to memorialize Kate Aurelius, a former Mercy Care employee and deputy director of the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), for her dedication to ensuring quality health care for the most vulnerable. The award recognizes an employee's outstanding contributions to our members and commitment to excellence.

RISE Awards
An annual recognition program to recognize people in our community working to make the lives of others better. RISE stands for Resilience, Innovation, Service and Empowerment. The awards honor individuals and organizations in two categories.

Leadership and Advocacy: This award is for a youth, an adult and a provider who are leaders in their community. They inspire change by the way they live their lives. They give a voice to people who can't always speak up. They take their message to health care decision makers.

Health and Wellness: This award is for a youth, an adult and a provider who helps others have a positive outlook on life. They encourage health and wellness for the mind, body and spirit. They work on improving themselves. They help people get involved in their recovery through community involvement.
