Congratulations to the 2017 Industry Award Winners!

Department of Information Technology
Cherokee Indian Hospital Authority

Tribal Health IT Award Winner
We were nominated on the basis of customer service, employee morale and the reorganization of our department as we transitioned into the new facility. During transition, we closed at 4:30 pm on Friday and opened on Monday and everything worked! It was a once-in-a-career type of move and we pulled it off in three days! This award is a validation of all our hard work.

Many of the employees within the organization made it a point to reach out to members of the IT team to thank them for the jobs they do each and every day. The recognition and appreciation shown by our fellow team members on this project and many like it are what makes this a great place to work.
