The West Midlands Virtual Hospital has secured Sandwell Council a finalist place at this year’s Express & Star Business Awards.

Sandwell will be vying for the Best Use of Technology award which is one of 12 awards up for grabs this year. Preliminary judging has whittled them down to 3 finalists in the category who will now undergo a rigorous assessment, including a series of site visits, as the difficult task of finding a winner gets under way.

Express & Star Editor Keith Harrison said: “We have been delighted at the huge response to this year’s awards, which are set to be the biggest and best so far. “There is an extraordinarily broad range of companies and organisations making up the list of finalists and many are new to the competition, which is very satisfying.

It shows the quality and depth of the business community across the Black Country, Staffordshire and the surrounding area.”

The awards winners will be announced at a gala dinner taking place Wolverhampton Racecourse on June 11 2015.
