The Award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions in clinical investigations that have advanced the diagnosis, treatment, and/or prevention of craniofacial-oral-dental diseases, as well as outstanding research endeavors in other areas. Selection is based upon the scope of the nominee's research, with special emphasis on its impact on clinical dentistry, and on publications in refereed journals. Award recipients typically demonstrate a high level of creativity and innovation. In addition, Dr. Casamassimo has been recently honored with Ohio Dental Association (ODA) Distinguished Dentist Award, which is the highest award given by the ODA.

This year, the award program honored one Champion from each of the 10 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regions.

Prestigious Design Award for Nationwide Children’s Hospital

The Columbus Landmarks Foundation presented its annual James B. Recchie Design Award to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The award “celebrates projects that add to the distinctive character and improved quality of life of Columbus.” The award focused on the Nationwide Children’s expansion that was completed in 2012.

Nancy Recchie, a historic preservation consultant and sister of the award’s namesake, recognized that in her comments to The Columbus Dispatch about Nationwide Children’s:

“Its laser focus on the child and family is evident everywhere, from the creative wayfinding system, to public areas that are bright and uplifting, to the patient rooms,” she said. “The thoughtfully designed outdoor spaces and park along Livingston Avenue are for use by both patient families and the neighborhood.”
