United Hospital Fund’s 2018 Tribute to Hospital and Health Care Trustees was held on Monday, April 30, at Cipriani 42nd Street. The Tribute is an annual awards celebration that recognizes the dedication and leadership of the volunteer leaders who govern not-for-profit hospitals, nursing homes, and home care organizations throughout the New York metropolitan region.

This year, we were very pleased to feature one of health care’s important thought leaders as a special guest speaker. Thomas H. Lee, MD, chief medical officer for Press Ganey, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, and professor of health policy and management at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, spoke from his professional experience as well as his own role as a health system trustee. His talk challenged health care trustees and executives to focus on three fundamental questions to guide their institutions through the uncertain times ahead.
