    If you ask the men and women in these pages what makes a hero, they point to their teams and teammates and those faithfully serving others. They seem genuinely surprised to have been nominated by their peers, associates or patients. But their passion for improving lives and compassion for their patients and clients is unquestionably clear. Each of these medical professionals has gone above and beyond the call of duty in exemplary ways. They are primary care physicians, pediatricians, surgeons, paramedics and advocates for homeless care. They are making a difference in lives around them, and they are making Colorado Springs a healthier, better community for all. These are the 2019 Healthcare Heroes.
