Sandra Johnson, director of risk and insurance services for Broward Health, has been awarded the Professional Recognition Award from the Florida Society for Healthcare Risk Management and Patient Safety (FSHRMPS).

“Sandy’s commitment to the profession and to Broward Health is unparalleled. She is tremendously deserving of this recognition,” said Frank Nask, President/CEO of Broward Health.

The Professional Recognition Award is FSHRMPS’s highest honor and recognizes exemplary service to the Society. The award credits individual members who have made significant contributions to the organization, to the profession of health care risk management and to patient safety.

“It is an honor to receive the Professional Recognition Award,” said Johnson. “We have an obligation to give back to our profession through volunteerism. The future of our profession and organizations is dependent upon our volunteers. They are the life line to any organization.”

Johnson has been a member of FSHRMPS since 1993 and has served in various capacities as a board member, secretary and president. She has also been an active member of the national organization since 1982. During her tenure as president of the Florida chapter, Johnson created the Professional Recognition Award to thank her peers who give their time and energy to the Society. Her vision for FSHRMPS included an active and engaged membership.

The Professional Recognition Award was presented in Tampa, Florida during the August 2011 annual conference by the presiding president.
