American Health Partners, a Franklin, Tennessee-based company that provides a wide range of health care services, honored 43 employees on November 13 for their dedication to providing high quality health care and outstanding service over the past year. The third annual Star Awards ceremony was celebrated via Zoom for employees who live in six of the seven states where the company operates.
During the live presentation, winners tuned in to the Zoom call to hear accolades from company leaders.
