Jim Morgan Honored with NCHA's Trustee Merit Award
Jim Morgan, trustee and former board chairman at High Point Regional Health System, was honored July 15 with the North Carolina Hospital Association's (NCHA) Trustee Merit Award.
“Jim brought a valuable perspective to our board having served as both a hospital trustee and a state legislator," said Bill Pully, president of NCHA. “His dedication to High Point Regional and to improving the quality of health care in North Carolina makes him a deserving recipient of NCHA's 2010 Trustee Merit Award."
The Trustee Merit Award is presented to a hospital trustee for unique contributions to the individual's hospital and for participation in statewide health care activities. Morgan received the award at NCHA's annual Summer Membership Meeting in Hilton Head, S.C.
He joined the board of trustees at High Point Regional in 1991. Morgan has served in a variety of board roles, including chair of the finance committee, vice-chairman of the board and board chair. Under his leadership, the hospital established a greater physician presence on its board. He currently serves on High Point Regional's investment committee.
Morgan was honored for his service to High Point Regional and for the three years he served on the board of the NCHA. During his service on the NCHA Board, Morgan has shown commitment to helping North Carolina hospitals improve their quality and performance.
NCHA is a statewide trade association representing 130 hospitals and health systems. The association promotes improved delivery of quality health care in North Carolina through leadership, advocacy, information and education, in its members' interest and for public benefit.
