Award WinnersLeadership Health Care (LHC), an initiative of the Nashville Health Care Council to nurture the talents of future health care leaders, has announced its 2013 award winners in the categories of Health Care Emerging Leader, Volunteer of the Year and Supporting Organization of the Year. The awards were announced last night at LHC’s annual holiday and awards reception at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, attended by more than 300 LHC members.

Jason Moore, founder and chief executive officer of Stratasan, received the Health Care Emerging Leader of the Year award. Stratasan was the first company accepted into Nashville’s Entrepreneur Center’s incubator program, and since the company’s launch, Moore has played an active role in shaping Nashville’s evolving HIT landscape.

Volunteer of the Year is Maggie Spalding, vice president of Alliant Insurance Services. Spalding is an exceptional supporter of LHC programs and has donated her time to volunteer at a number of events this year. Her enthusiasm for the organization while interacting with other members and prospective members represents LHC at the highest level.

HCA was named the Supporting Organization of the Year for its ongoing commitment to LHC and enriching the next generation of health care industry leaders. The company engaged in numerous LHC events through speakers, membership participation and leadership on the LHC Board of Directors and committees, and has been an advocate for both LHC and the Council for many years. R. Milton Johnson, who will become president and CEO of HCA in January, accepted the award on the company’s behalf.
