ST. PETERSBURG Heather Wood of Northside Hospital recently received HCAs 2013 Frist Humanitarian Award.

Wood is a Certified Hand Therapist and licensed Occupational Therapist with the Rehab Services Department at Northside Hospital. She has participated in the education of the interns and residents at Northside Hospital in addition to giving community lectures on common hand injuries, participating in stroke support groups and ergonomics.

Wood has a masters degree in Bible and in Judaic studies, and finds time to lead a weekly study group at the community library. She also has volunteered her time and finances to travel to Nicaragua to train, teach and serve in the area of hand therapy. She most recently volunteered for a medical mission in September 2013 traveling to China for two weeks to educate hand surgeons on the role of hand therapists and to lay the groundwork for future therapists to volunteer there and assist in establishing a functioning hand therapy clinic to support the great number of hand patients.

I was humbled to have the honor of presenting Heather with HCAs distinguished Frist Humanitarian Award, said Dia Nichols, president and CEO of Northside Hospital, in a press release. For me, this was a huge privilege, as the Frist Humanitarian Award is the highest honor, and the highest award in all of HCA. The care that she provides to complete strangers on a global level exemplifies why she is so deserving of this award.

The Frist Humanitarian Awards are given annually in recognition of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist Sr., a founder of HCA.
