Highlands Health System was presented with the 2011 Circle of Friends Special Achievement Award by the Kentucky Hospital Association. The award was presented at the annual meeting of the Kentucky Hospital Association, held this spring at the Galt House, in Louisville.
Highlands’ President and CEO Harold “Bud” C. Warman accepted the award on behalf of the health system, which raised the most funds during the 2011 fundraising year to benefit KHA.
The Circle of Friends is the political action committee of the Kentucky Hospital Association. This organization is instrumental in helping to shape legislation and other governmental policies regarding health care in the state of Kentucky. The committee achieves its results through one-on-one meetings with elected officials, helping to educate them on the struggles of Kentucky hospitals due to mounting numbers of uninsured patients and inadequate reimbursement.
