Trustee of the Year Award

Due to the impact COVID-19 is having on hospital and health system staff, MHA will be suspending the 2020 Trustee of the Year Award. While we believe these awards are important to recognize the outstanding work that individuals and hospitals are doing, we also understand how valuable your time is, especially now, and should be devoted to addressing the needs of your hospitals and communities.

The Trustee of the Year Award honors up to two individual trustees who currently serve on a Missouri hospital or health system governing board.

The selection criteria is based on leadership skills, grassroots advocacy, community involvement, meeting participation and personal development. The awards are presented at MHA’s Annual Convention & Trade Show at the Celebration of Achievement Awards Dinner. Please consider nominating a trustee that has been instrumental in your hospital or community.
