2013 Distinguished Hospital Trustee Award Call For Nominations

The deadline for nominations is July 15, 2013.

At the TAP Conference in 2012, Bernard Warshaw with Colleton Medical Center and Terry Cash with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System both accepted the Distinguished Hospital Trustee Award.

Both recipients were selected and recognized for service far above what is expected of a hospital trustee. Both have dedicated significant time and energy to the hospital, outside of normal board member roles and responsibilities. That kind of commitment, service, and advocacy both in the local community and with state and federally elected officials is representative of the Distinguished Hospital Trustee Award. It’s time to nominate a trustee from your hospital who also represents what it means to be a Distinguished Hospital Trustee. This year nominations are being accepted online. You can access the nomination packet at the link below. The deadline for nominations is July 15, 2013.
