SelectHealth is now accepting applications for the 2013 Select 25 awards. At least three recipients will be chosen from each of four specified Utah regions, including northern, eastern, southern and western Utah, as well as greater Salt Lake City. Thirteen at-large winners will also be chosen.

The winners are selected by a committee of leaders from SelectHealth, Intermountain Healthcare and the community. Applications are being accepted until Jan. 11, 2013, and only the first 500 will be considered.
