Awards

Associated Press Media Editors Journalism Excellence Award

2014 - Public service
Honorable mention for "Missteps and Secrets," a six-month investigation into the mistakes at a nuclear weapon laboratory that caused a radiation leak at a waste dump and essentially shut down clean-up efforts nationally for years. It revealed jaw-dropping secrets about the volatility of the waste, which the lab had downplayed and generally hidden from the public and even nuclear workers encountered the waste.

Association of Healthcare Journalists

2014 - Health policy reporting
The two-part series, "The True Cost of Care," used data analysis to demonstrate that hospitals charged uninsured patients inflated prices for care - sometimes reaching 900 percent the cost of providing the service. When they can't collect excessive bills from uninsured patients, the uncollected sums become part of the body of evidence hospitals use to prove they're doing charitable work, often leveraging the overstated costs to get tax breaks that public officials sometimes wonder if they deserve.
