Hospital and health system trustees are up to the challenge. This group of extraordinary citizens shares a common vision: service excellence, physician integration, clinical innovation, best practices and patient safety in the midst of shrinking reimbursement and rising costs. Their commitment and dedication to the organizations they govern never waver, even as demand for services increase and resources and capital decline.
Witt/Kieffer is proud to partner with Modern Healthcare to support the Trustee of the Year award program for the eighth consecutive year. This year's winners join others nationwide who work with their organizations to protect the health and welfare of their communities, particularly in tough economic times.
Healthcare in this country is at a turning point, and trustees continue to play a deeply personal role. There are too few opportunities to recognize service and dedication to their communities and to this country. One of the best ways to celebrate their achievements is to read these remarkable stories. I am confident you will find them both inspiring and enduring.
