Healthcare Achievement Awards 2020

Practitioner of the Year finalist

Martha Simmons, certified nurse practitioner, LifeCare Alliance

Martha Simmons has worked at the Columbus Cancer Clinic as a certified nurse practitioner for four years. She cares for those who have no insurance or are underinsured and treats patients with compassion.

“Our health care team provides high-quality, low-cost cancer screening services to detect or prevent selected cancers,” she says. “We strive to help eliminate cancer disparities in our community. No one is denied care due to inability to pay.”

Here are Columbus CEO’s Healthcare Achievement Award winners and finalists for 2020. Inspiring stories ahead.

Simmons says her nursing career has gone through multiple evolutions since she graduated from college in 1967. 

“But who wants to retire when I can be a part of a professional compassionate team that has had such a positive impact on the lives of the patients we serve?”
