Are you a rock star?


I've had the HME Excellence Awards on my mind this week.

First, after a week on the road in southern California, I went to my mailbox here at HME News headquarters in Yarmouth, Maine, on Monday and found our very first application for the 2012 HME Excellence Awards. I'm not going to name names, but it's for Best HME Provider and the company is in Jacksonville, Fla. Thank you, thank you!

Second, today, while looking at the proofs for our March issue, I noticed an ad for the HME Excellence Awards created and developed by our fab marketing and creative team here at HME News:

I love the ad's rock star vibe.

Because that's what I imagine our 2011 HME Excellence Awards winners felt like. They got to have their names announced and their pictures taken (with me and publisher Rick Rector, no less) at the Power For Funding event at Medtrade in the fall:

That's Best Rehab Technology Provider Teresa Glass Owens and her crew at Glass Seating & Mobility.

They also got to speak on a panel at our HME News Business Summit, also in the fall.

That's how much we think of these best-in-class HME providers.

Are you a rock star? The application deadline is May 25.
