McKnight's Long-Term Care News was honored Monday with a Gold Award for Best News Section in the 2010 ASHPE Awards competition. McKnight's also won the Gold Award for Best Single Issue, and took four Silver Awards in the contest. The group honors the best editorial work among healthcare publications in the United States each year. Last year, ASHPE named McKnight's its Publication of the Year.

McKnight's has now won 37 ASHPE awards, including 10 Gold Awards. This year marked the third Gold Award for print news section and the eighth time in the last nine years the section has been in the top three.

The 2010 Silver Awards were for “Best Online News Section,” “Best Blog,” “Best Regular Column: Staff-Written” and “Best Cover Illustration.”

It's the sixth ASHPE award for the online news section. Executive Editor John O'Connor won Silver for the best staff-written column, The BIG Picture. It is his fifth award and fourth year in a row as a winner. Associate Editor Liza Berger oversees the award-winning The Editors' Blog, while Scott Pollack won in the cover illustration category for his depiction of a special tornado for the April issue of McKnight's Assisted Living.

The annual ASHPE contest recognizes outstanding editorial excellence and achievement in healthcare publications. The latest batch of awards was given for works that appeared in 2009. ASHPE stands for the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors.
