INDIANAPOLIS – During the 13th Annual American Business Awards in Chicago on June 22, MDwise was presented a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Customer Service Department of the Year in the Healthcare category.

“I am very proud of our customer service team for the tremendous job they do daily advocating for and communicating with our members,” said Katherine Wentworth, interim president and CEO and Chief Operating Officer of MDwise.

 “Our corporate values include delivering consistent, high quality, compassionate care, and our call center team plays a large role in ensuring we deliver on this promise. It’s wonderful to see them recognized on a national level.”
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
