2022 Shortlist Announcement

Thank you to everyone who submitted applications for the 2022 Irish Healthcare Centre Awards. We received an unprecedented number of applications this year and it was perhaps our toughest year to date!

In fact, some categories were so large, that we will be offering an Honourable Mention Award to those who were a close second in the larger groups.

To those of you who made the shortlist below, congratulations, you made it through one of the hardest judging processes we have had, with no decision being made lightly.

To those of you who did not make it this year, we want to thank you for your application, and for your continued amazing work, and hope you will apply again next year.

See below for the final shortlist for the 2022 awards. We look forward to seeing you on the night!
