Each year, Fort Worth Business begins an extensive nomination and selection process to recognize excellence within the medical community—excellence demonstrated by physicians, administrators, and volunteers. HealthCare Heroes are selected and judged based on nominations from those in the profession and the business community. After reviewing the nominations of many candidates, Fort Worth Business selected David Rothbart, M.D., as a 2016 HealthCare Hero.
