09.02.2014

(Greenwood Village, Colo.) - American Medical Response (AMR) was named the winner of the Gold Stevie® Award for "Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year in Canada and the U.S.A." in the 11th Annual International Business Awards. AMR was recognized for the 2013 AMR World CPR Challenge, which organized more than 175 training events across the country and taught more than 54,000 people compression-only CPR in one day.

“We are honored that the International Business Awards would recognize the passion and hard work of hundreds of AMR clinicians and support team members. Our teams taught 54,884 individuals in communities across the country what to do if they come upon a friend, loved-one or even a stranger in sudden cardiac arrest,” said AMR President Ted Van Horne. “The 2013 AMR World CPR Challenge exceeded our expectations and I’m proud to say we surpassed that number by nearly 7,000 when we repeated the event this year.”

“The AMR World CPR Challenge is a powerful public health event delivered by hundreds of our AMR colleagues and friends around the world in a single day. Compression-only CPR is not only easy to perform, it makes a significant positive impact on a patient’s chances of a normal outcome after experiencing sudden cardiac death” added Ed Racht, M.D., AMR’s Chief Medical Officer. “We’re proud of everyone’s passionate efforts to make a significant difference in this challenging global health problem.”

More than 3,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Website of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.

“We congratulate all of the Stevie winners in this year’s IBAs,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The quality of entries we receive improves every year. This year’s judges were rewarded with the opportunity to review more than 3,500 stories of business achievement and innovation from around the world. We look forward to celebrating the winners’ achievements in Paris on Oct. 10.”
