I had the great privilege last week of honoring 13 terrifically talented, committed, and distinguished members of the St. Luke’s Health System family with the 2012 President’s Award. As president and CEO of St. Luke’s, I chose the recipients. It’s hard work, because dozens of wonderful people are nominated by their peers, who know top quality when they see it. Thirteen people is less than 2/10th of 1 percent of 10,000, a conservative estimate of our work force.
The 2012 President's Award winners, honored at a special dinner ceremony attended by more than 100 people, are:
David C. Pate, M.D., J.D., is president and CEO of St. Luke's Health System, based in Boise, Idaho. Dr. Pate joined the System in 2009. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and his law degree from the University of Houston Law Center.
