Nominations open for the 2014 Distinguished Hospital Trustee Award

Recognition of a hospital trustee for contributions to the hospital, community, effective advocacy and collaboration.

At the TAP Conference last year, Calvin Elam with Palmetto Health and Dr. Eddie Floyd with Carolinas Hospital System both accepted the 2013 Distinguished Hospital Trustee Award. Both recipients were selected and recognized for service far above what is expected of a hospital trustee. As a reminder of their contributions to their local hospital, surrounding community and the state, take a look at the award video from last year. Both Calvin and Dr. Floyd represent the kind of commitment, service, and advocacy recognized by this statewide award.

The award will again be presented at the TAP Conference in Hilton Head, September 18-20, 2014 and I’d like to ask for all of you to consider someone from your board who should be recognized for his or her contributions to the hospital, to the community, to effective advocacy, and to collaboration. To submit your nomination, access the DHT 2014 nomination online. All nominations are due by July 14. Please direct any questions about the nomination process to Lara Hewitt.
