 2017 Award for Excellence in Healthcare Service 

Our 2017 Award for Excellence in Healthcare Service is awarded annually to someone who best personifies service in Grand County's healthcare system, and would be a worthy role model to be emulated by others.

The Network’s board of directors is pleased to announce the

2017 recipient of the Award for Excellence in Healthcare:

Wade Walker, RPh, City Market pharmacist 

Most people know Wade as the kind-hearted and helpful pharmacist. He exemplifies a professional role model. He collaborates with the patient's health care team and community organizations to improve patient care. He is always helping patients ensure the best path for them by informing them of resources available or trying creative ways through their insurance to make it work for the patient. His energy is always positive. You know he is very busy but he never makes you feel like you are bothering him. He is always willing to help or answer questions about medications in a way that people understand.
