Cody, Wyo.(October 15, 2018) – Cody Regional Health’s Chief Executive Officer, Doug McMillan,
was recently awarded the prestigious American Hospital Association Grassroots
Champion Award for 2018.
Every year, the American Hospital Association, in conjunction with the
state hospital associations, recognizes the achievements of grassroots leaders.
Individuals are recognized for exceptional leadership in generating grassroots
and community activity in support of a hospital’s mission. They
effectively educate elected officials on how major issues affect the hospital’s
vital role in the community, and who are tireless advocates for hospitals
and their patients.
“Doug McMillan for the past 21 years has diligently moved our organization
in the right direction to benefit our community’s healthcare and
economy. Without his leadership I don’t believe CRH would be the
robust healthcare system we are today,” states Chief Clinical Officer
and Senior Leader, Keith Ungrund.
“Doug has long been a strong advocate of hospitals and healthcare
in the state of Wyoming and especially in his community. He has served
for years as a hospital representative on the American Hospital Association
Regional Policy Board and has helped drive policy to improve healthcare
and protect hospitals, both nationally but even more importantly, in Wyoming.
He has traveled to DC and is readily available to work with our congressional
delegates. He spends time and works with local state legislatures keeping
them abreast and educating them on healthcare issues. He is actively involved
in the state and national PAC. His grassroots efforts have definitely
been effective and he has earned the respect of the legislators,”
States Eric Boley, President of Wyoming Hospital Association.
“I can’t think of a more deserving CEO for this award. Our
board depends on Doug’s expertise as we make major decisions that
will affect our healthcare in the Big Horn Basin Region. We are moving
in the right direction and are thankful for his sound guidance and leadership,”
states Graham Jackson, Cody Regional Health Trustee.
Cody Regional Health works to meet their community’s health needs
by providing extraordinary healthcare to those they serve by people who
care. Their key values are compassion, integrity, excellence, innovation
