Penn Vital Signs, Three-Time Emmy Winner!
University of Pennsylvania Health System embarked
on a project to show how we care for our patients
and provide treatment options, professional care
and clinical excellence in the Philadelphia region.
The concept for Penn Vital Signs was formed. Over
the years, many of our physicians, surgeons, nurses,
technicians and staff have, in some way, been
involved with this program.
We were recently recognized for our efforts.
The National Television Academy of Television
Arts and Science awards leaders in the Mid-Atlantic
area for excellence in television programming.
This year, Penn Vital Signs was nominated in
three categories: Outstanding Public Affairs
series, Outstanding Health and Science Program
and Writing for a Series.
At the award ceremony
on September 17, 2005, Penn Vital Signs won
in the category of Outstanding Health and
Science Program for the episode on transplant
surgery titled Organ
Donation: The Gift of Life. Penn Vital
Signs also won in the category of Outstanding
Health and Science Writing for a Series.
