Saint Alphonsus Presents Annual Distinguished Citizen Awards
Start Date

Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center to honor both an individual and an organization
for continued leadership in improving the health of local communities

Boise, ID – On Wednesday, May 14th, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center will present two awards for Distinguished Citizen of 2014.  Ada County Paramedics will be recognized as Distinguished Organizational Citizen, and local entrepreneur Winston Moore will be recognized as Distinguished Individual Citizen during the annual event at Saint Alphonsus in Boise. 

The Ada County Paramedics, recipients of the Distinguished Organizational Citizen Award, join the ranks of other small businesses, foundations, and corporations who have given substantial philanthropic support spanning several years – including gifts-in-kind, promotion of volunteerism, and community involvement efforts.  Ada County Paramedics consistently display their commitment to improving the health of our communities, while also encouraging their own employees to give back.  Saint Alphonsus is proud to work side-by-side with the Ada County Paramedics' professionalism and continued excellence.

Winston Moore, as recipient of the Distinguished Individual Citizen Award, will be honored for his leadership, vision, creativity, and philanthropy.  Moore has dedicated countless hours to improving the health of the Treasure Valley through his work as a local business leader and celebrated philanthropist.  As founder and owner of the W.H. Moore Company, Moore has served as a role model for generations of leaders who follow him, and has continued to show remarkable support for the ongoing mission of Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. 

The Distinguished Citizen Awards Ceremony will be held inside the McCleary Auditorium at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise on May 14th at 6:00 pm.  The event will feature several guest speakers - including Dave Case, Ada County Commissioner; Darby Weston, Ada County Paramedics Director; and Bea Black, Executive Director of the Women's and Children's Alliance.
