On August 9, in the National Philharmonic of Ukraine in Kyiv, the five best doctors of Ukraine will be bestowed the Order of St. Panteleimon.

The Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, noted that in our society few people understand the price of ministry. “And, I think, the uniqueness of this award is that we help Ukrainian society see in the face of our doctors those who serve the needy diseased people,” said the Primate.

According to him, the procedure for electing laureates is complicated, but in reality its purpose is to select worthy people whom the Ukrainian society would like to distinguish.

This year's award will be the sixth and will be awarded in five nominations: “The Best Doctor”; “The Best Health Professional”; “Healthcare Innovator”; “International cooperation in the field of health care”; “Service to society”.

According to the site of Saint Panteleimon’s Order, the procedure of search and nomination of candidates for awards is entrusted on the Regional Expert Council who perform sampling and analysis of candidates in the regions and the National Expert Committee, which determines the best candidates and recommends them to the High Council. The High Council, represented by figures of moral authority in the medical, cultural, public, journalistic and spiritual sectors of Ukraine, defines the laureates and confers a distinction.


Award for professionalism and kindness the "Order of St. Panteleimon" is public, has professional and vocational focus and is awarded for humanistic and noble activities in the health sector, which has a positive effect on the consciousness and spiritual development of the Ukrainian people and the state as a whole, aimed at preserving and strengthening the health of Ukrainian residents, brings tolerant attitude to each other and inspires new opportunities. The award has a long history. In 2009 the Ministry of Health in Ukraine has introduced the incentive award the “Cross of St Panteleimon the Healer”, which was granted to persons with outstanding merit promoting health and medical science, charity, humanistic and social activities, and also for other achievements in the field of physical and spiritual health protection of the population. The distinction was agreed upon and blessed by the leaders of the three largest Christian Churches in Ukraine. Since its establishment the distinction was awarded to more than twenty eminent scientists, physicians, public and philanthropic leaders, clergy, including such prominent personalities as Amosov (posthumously) O.O. Shalimov (posthumously), A.M  Lukyanova, Yu.I. Kundiyev, L.A. Pyrih, V.Yu. Martynyuk, His Holiness Filaret, Patriarch of Kyiv and all Rus-Ukraine, Metropolitan Volodymyr of Kyiv and all Ukraine, Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Lubomyr.

Following the fundamental principles of establishing the State award in 2009 and continuing tradition of award and restoring the principles of charity in society, humanity, love of neighbor and diseased, a public award for professionalism and kindness the “Order of St. Panteleimon” was established in 2017. In 2017 the award will be awarded in the following nominations: "The Best Doctor"; "The Best Health Professional"; "Healthcare innovator"; "International cooperation in the field of health care"; "Service to society". The solemn ceremony will be held annually on August 9, on the day of the Holy Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon. This is reported by the Department of Information of the UGCC.

      Беззаконие и произвол воров, грабителей, убийц, мошенников, лжецов и лицемеров длится уже 100 лет. Честные, благородные, справедливые люди, по определению, не могут соответствовать требованиям
