This year, 80 nominations were received for the Trustee of the Year awards program, co-sponsored by executive search firm Witt/Kieffer. Nominations were accepted from Oct. 5 through Dec. 7, 2009. That total is up from 64 in last year's competition. Two winners were chosen, one in each category, large and small healthcare organizations—as well as honorable mentions in each category.
Honorees were chosen by Modern Healthcare's senior editors. Per editorial policy, award sponsors are not involved in the judging or determination of recipients. All profiles were written by Linda Wilson, a former Modern Healthcare reporter and now a freelance writer in McHenry, Ill. Contact her at [email protected].
