Bathing company receives award

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has named MasterCare Patient Equipment of Columbus, NE, as a winner of its annual DREAM BIG Blue Ribbon Small Business Awards®.

This award recognized 100 companies for their success and contribution to the U.S. economy. Applicants were judged in four key categories: strategic planning, employee development, customer service, and community involvement. Seven regional finalists will be announced Wednesday. All winners will be honored at the annual America's Small Business Summit, which will take place June 13-15 in Washington.

During that event, one regional finalist will receive the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Sam's Club®, and a $10,000 cash prize courtesy of the U.S. Chamber. All Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners are also eligible for the Community Excellence Award.
