The C.A.P.E. Award (Cintas Cleaning to Advance the Patient Experience) recognizes Environmental Services (EVS) technicians in acute care facilities who are at the frontline of patient care, providing clean and safe facilities for healthcare workers, patients and visitors across the country. The public can nominate an EVS superhero technician who might not wear a cape but plays a critical role in cleaning and sanitizing, some during an outbreak like COVID-19.
Eight winners will receive a $2,500 cash prize and a $2,500 donation on their behalf to their healthcare institution or charity of their choice. They will also receive a Rubbermaid charging bucket with products inside.
The Cintas C.A.P.E. Award is open to all acute care EVS technicians who have worked at their facility for at least one year.
