The first-ever annual report for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt received top honors from the League of American Communications Professionals' 2004 Vision Awards.

The report, titled “Our Hospital,” earned the only Platinum Award in the health care class. More than 1,400 entries from 17 countries were received for this year's overall competition.

The competition was judged by a field of communications professionals affiliated with LACP.

Their expertise spans a broad spectrum of PR functions ranging from corporate, executive and internal communications for Fortune 500 organizations to product, service and non-profit publicity expertise. Judges are screened to ensure that there are no conflicts of interest.

The report was edited by Jessica Howard of VUMC's Office of News and Public Affairs.

This marks the third year in a row that a VUMC annual report has been recognized by the Vision Awards competition; for the past two years the Medical Center Annual Report was named one of the top 100 annual reports of the year by LACP.
