NASHVILLE – Leadership Health Care, an initiative of more than 560 emerging health care industry leaders, has named Deloitte Director Lisa Nix its 2009 Volunteer of the Year.

“Leadership Health Care owes its success to the tremendous work of our member volunteers,” said Bo Bartholomew, LHC Chairman and CEO of PharmMD. “Lisa is a truly deserving award recipient. She has been an energetic supporter of our efforts to foster leadership and to promote innovative discussion about the health care industry.”

The Leadership Health Care Volunteer of the Year Award annually recognizes a member for efforts in support of LHC, a program of the Nashville Health Care Council designed to cultivate the next generation of health care leaders.

“Leadership Health Care plays a significant role in nurturing future health care leaders, and I am proud to be a part of these efforts,” Nix said. “I am excited to receive the award and look forward to continuing my involvement in this important organization.”

Nix, who serves on the Deloitte & Touche Life Sciences & Health Care M&A Transaction Services team, has been instrumental in the development and growth of LHC since the group’s beginnings in 2002. She is a member of the organization’s board of directors and its strategic development committee and has lent her health care financial expertise to LHC in planning programmatic content for its 2009 Delegation to Wall Street as well as its other unique programs and signature events specially-designed for emerging industry leaders.

“We are so pleased that Lisa has received this award. She is an outstanding advocate for both Leadership Health Care and Nashville’s broader health care industry,” said Caroline Young, president of the Nashville Health Care Council.
