KHA Grassroots Advocacy Leadership Award Goes to St. Claire HealthCare for Second Year

KHA Grassroots Advocacy Leadership Award Goes to St. Claire HealthCare for Second Year

St. Claire HealthCare (SCH) received the Kentucky Hospital Association’s (KHA) annual Grassroots Advocacy Leadership Award during its recent Health Care Leadership Conference. This is the second year of the award and SCH was also its inaugural winner last year.

President/CEO of SCH, Donald H. Lloyd, II, received the award on behalf of the healthcare system. Since its founding, SCH has worked closely with elected officials from all the counties it serves to provide assistance and develop partnerships to benefit all of Eastern Kentucky. Kentucky has faced numerous obstacles in recent years, from COVID-19 to natural weather disasters. SCH has been able to utilize its partnerships to provide aid and clinical support for people throughout the state.

“It is such an honor to be recognized by the KHA for the second year in a row,” said Lloyd. “St. Claire has always emphasized collaboration and developing working relationships that will benefit our service area. Without the aid and support of policymakers, regulatory officials, legislative leaders, and the Governor’s office, we cannot fulfill our mission to proclaim God’s goodness through a healing ministry to the people of Eastern Kentucky.”

The KHA was established in 1929 and is dedicated to improving and sustaining the health status of the people of Kentucky. The KHA uses VoterVoice to allow its members to contact state and federal legislators and share their hospital’s stories. This information is then collected and reviewed to choose a hospital or healthcare system to honor for its advocacy efforts.
