CCMH is celebrating our "Rock Stars of healthcare”-that’s the theme for this year’s National Hospital Week, May 10-16, 2015. It celebrates the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. This is the annual opportunity to thank the dedicated individuals—physicians, therapist, technologist, nurses, support staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their commitment. It’s also a great time for us to tell the hospital story and publicly reinforce the vital role hospitals play in their community’s overall health, which extends far beyond strictly providing medical care.

Lake Ozark, Mo. — The Missouri Hospital Association has awarded a Governance Excellence certificate to Jim Gibson to acknowledge his completion of its new voluntary educational program for hospital board members. Mr. Gibson honored Thursday, June 13, at the MHA Leadership Forum in Lake Ozark, Mo.
“Not for profit board governance requires a special person with unique skill sets,“ says Jeff Tindle, CEO Carroll County Memorial Hospital. “Most bring their commitment and devotion to the organization as their number one skill set. Some Board members want to bring even more and along with their business experience seek specialized training and that is certainly the case with Jim Gibson. Achieving the Governance Excellence Certificate from Missouri Hospital Association is a true testament to Jim’s commitment to Carroll County Memorial Hospital. We are very grateful to Jim’s commitment and successful completion of this important certification.”
The Governance Excellence Certificate Program was launched in 2011 to enhance hospital trustees’ skills and provide them with increased knowledge of issues in hospital governance to help them make effective decisions for their organizations.
“Hospitals are complex organizations,” said Herb B. Kuhn, MHA president and CEO. “To add value to decisions about hospital operations and support a hospital’s work in the community, a trustee must have a thorough understanding of a range of responsibilities in governance practices and the integration of the hospital’s mission and values. The Governance Excellence Certificate Program is designed to expand trustees’ knowledge base and provide enhanced decision-making skills.”
To complete the certificate program, trustees were required to attend a day-long session at MHA’s annual convention in November 2012 and complete six of eight independent study modules. The 27 certificate recipients recognized June 13 serve as trustees at 19 Missouri hospitals.
