Se­lect­ing 2013’s Trustees of the Year

Modern Healthcare - - SPECIAL FEATURE - —Mer­rill Goozner, ed­i­tor of Mod­ern Health­care

One com­po­nent that of­ten sep­a­rates the best hos­pi­tals and health­care com­pa­nies from their com­peti­tors is an en­gaged, in­no­va­tive and in­spi­ra­tional gov­ern­ing board. Be­cause their guid­ance and coun­sel are so im­por­tant to an or­ga­ni­za­tion’s lead­er­ship, we con­sider Mod­ern Health­care’s an­nual Trustees of the Year Awards one of our most sig­nif­i­cant recog­ni­tion pro­grams.

The Trustee of the Year com­pe­ti­tion is once again co-spon­sored by ex­ec­u­tive search firm Witt/Ki­ef­fer, based in Oak Brook, Ill. We re­ceived 65 im­pres­sive nominations in four cat­e­gories: large hos­pi­tals, those with 100 or more staffed beds; small hos­pi­tals, those with fewer than 100 staffed beds; not-for-profit health­care sys­tems; and for-profit health­care com­pa­nies.

This year, Mod­ern Health­care’s se­nior edi­tors chose three hon­orees. Mod­ern Health­care is not in­clud­ing an award in the for-profit cat­e­gory be­cause of an in­suf­fi­cient num­ber of nominations to make the judg­ing for that award com­pet­i­tive. Per ed­i­to­rial pol­icy, award spon­sors are not in­volved in the judg­ing or de­ter­mi­na­tion of award re­cip­i­ents.

We hope the pro­files of this year’s award win­ners, as well as those from pre­vi­ous years you’ll find on­line, will un­der­score how im­por­tant and im­pact­ful a great trustee can be, and that it will en­cour­age you to nom­i­nate an in­spir­ing leader for this award next year.
