For the past nine years, Maxim has recognized our caregivers and healthcare professionals who embody our values and demonstrate excellence through our Caregiver of the Year program. The annual program rewards caregivers and healthcare professionals for their overall contribution and commitment to delivering quality care to their colleagues, and most of all, the patients and families they serve. 

 We recently named the National Winner’s award after Maxim’s former Chief Medical Officer, John “Doc” Langley, in recognition of his significant contributions to improving the caregiver and patient experience.  This year we received over 160 nominations from office leaders across the country. After careful review and deliberations, four finalists were selected.
