Rockville, Md. — DrFirst, a pioneer of innovative healthcare software solutions and services, was presented with SmartCEO magazine’s Corporate Culture Award during a recent ceremony that gathered some of the top business leaders in the greater Washington, D.C. area.

The Corporate Culture Awards recognize companies in select metro regions that have successfully championed a positive, productive and performance-driven culture that sustains a competitive advantage.

“Our corporate culture is unique because we allow employees to be the entrepreneurs of their own careers,” says G. Cameron Deemer, president of DrFirst. “We urge every employee to understand what value they bring to our team and to take every opportunity to improve and grow.”

“Running a company is more than head count and the bottom line. It’s about creating a place where creativity, energy and ideas are cultivated,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, president of SmartCEO Events. “Through this they are able to not only enhance performance and sustain their companies’ competitive advantages but also enrich the lives of those they employ. We’re honored to celebrate with the leaders of Washington’s top company cultures and recognize them for building true performance-­driven cultures.”
