Recognize a Trustee who has Impacted Your Hospital
Deadline for nominations is May 1st
Does your organization have a board member who has been instrumental in the progress of your hospital or health care system? Then nominate them for THT’s Founders’ Award. This accolade honors a distinguished health care trustee with an exemplary record of leadership, dedication and excellence in health care governance and their community.
THT is also calling for nominations for the Star Trustee Award. This award recognizes an outstanding trustee, committee or board that effectively advocates for their hospital, health system, the hospital community at large or health care policy on a statewide or national basis.
The Founders’ Award is presented annually to a distinguished health care trustee with an exemplary record of leadership, dedication and excellence in health care governance and in the community.
The Founders’ Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Texas Healthcare Trustees. The award was established in 1972 when it was presented to the five founders of THT. The Founders’ Award remains a symbol of dedication and excellence in leadership and health care governance.
Congratulations to our 2012 Founders' Award recipients, . A.L. Mangham and Dr. James Redfield of Nacogdoches Medical Center.
