Com­mu­nity Lead­er­ship nom­i­na­tions sought

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Health­care at­tracts people who are com­mit­ted to mak­ing a dif­fer­ence. Their life’s work is based on a mis­sion to help those around them have health­ier and hap­pier lives.

It’s no sur­prise, then, that many people who suc­ceed in health­care and rise to the ex­ec­u­tive ranks take com­mu­nity ser­vice se­ri­ously. They know that help­ing people re­quires mov­ing be­yond the walls of their head­quar­ters or med­i­cal cam­puses to serve the com­mu­nity at large.

In recog­ni­tion of these ef­forts, Mod­ern Health­care cre­ated the Com­mu­nity Lead­er­ship Award. It hon­ors top health­care ex­ec­u­tives for the work they do out­side of the or­ga­ni­za­tions and cor­po­ra­tions they lead to im­prove the health and well-be­ing of oth­ers, whether they are just down the street or half­way around the world.

Nom­i­na­tions for Mod­ern Health­care’s third an­nual Com­mu­nity Lead­er­ship Award are now be­ing ac­cepted. The sub­mis­sion dead­line is June 6. To be el­i­gi­ble for the award, a nom­i­nee must be a CEO, pres­i­dent, ad­min­is­tra­tor or other top ex­ec­u­tive of a health­care or­ga­ni­za­tion or cor­po­ra­tion from any sec­tor of the in­dus­try. Also, out­side vol­un­teer work must have oc­curred within the past 24 months.

To par­tic­i­pate, a nom­i­nee’s or­ga­ni­za­tion or cor­po­ra­tion must sub­mit a let­ter de­scrib­ing the can­di­date’s com­mu­nity lead­er­ship com­mit­ment within three cri­te­ria: how far the ex­ec­u­tive’s ser­vice ef­forts go be­yond his or her core job re­spon­si­bil­i­ties; the vol­un­tary na­ture of the work done out­side the or­ga­ni­za­tion or cor­po­ra­tion; and the demon­strated pos­i­tive im­pact of that work on the com­mu­nity.

A re­sume, bi­og­ra­phy or cur­ricu­lum vi­tae and sup­port­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion also are re­quired. Sup­port­ing documents may in­clude letters of rec­om­men­da­tion and dig­i­tal con­tent such as pho­tos, videos and au­dio files. Can­di­dates may not nom­i­nate them­selves.
