Send nominations for Excellence in Governance awards
Modern Healthcare is now accepting nominations for its inaugural Excellence in Governance awards for 2015.
Formerly known as Trustee of the Year awards, the program has been broadened to recognize healthcare trustees and/or directors for their outstanding individual achievements serving on governing boards for healthcare organizations from all sectors of the industry. These exceptional board members are instrumental in guiding the growth and development of healthcare within their communities and across the country.
Governing board members will be recognized in six categories. Four individual awards will be given for provider organizations, whether not-for-profit or forprofit—one for healthcare systems and one each for small, midsized and large hospitals or other healthcare provider organizations.
Two individual awards will be given for corporate, for-profit non-provider organizations such as insurers, devicemakers, pharmaceutical companies, suppliers and other vendors.
One award will be given for publicly traded companies and another for privately held organizations.
Nominations will be judged for their individual achievements in healthcare governance at their organizations, specifically on financial performance, strategic planning, ethics/social responsibility and community relations.
The deadline for nominations is Dec. 19. The winners will be profiled in the Feb. 16, 2015 issue of Modern Healthcare and online.
