Tarpon Springs, FL (November 19, 2012) – Florida Hospital North Pinellas is the newest recipient of the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce “Large Business of the Year” award. Nominations are placed by Chamber partners and members for three categories, small, medium and large business of the year. Businesses must complete a full application detailing their contributions to the community, how they overcome obstacles in their business, as well as highlight good and ethical business practices. Judges are brought in from outside of the community and interview the nominees face-to-face. Once the application and interview process are complete, the judges cast their votes for each business category.
Sue Thomas, President of the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce for the last five years, commented on the judges’ impression of Florida Hospital North Pinellas, “What really impressed them about the hospital is that they have worked so hard with the community, the foundation and the people. They were really impressed with their passion.”
Mrs. Thomas went on to say that Bruce Bergherm (President/CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas) and Paul Hoover (Vice President of Business Development) really “have an interest in making the hospital work; it’s more than a job or career. Florida Hospital has shown that they’re here to help the community. There’s a compassion for the community.”
