Miller Receives N.C. Hospital Association’s Highest Honor
Jeffrey S. Miller, FACHE, President and CEO, High Point Regional Health System has been awarded the North Carolina Hospital Association’s 2005 Distinguished Service Award.
The award is given each year to a hospital chief executive and honors the individual’s unique service to his or her institution, the healthcare field, and NCHA. Mr. Miller received the award July 21 at the NCHA Summer Meeting in Hilton Head, S.C.
“The Association is proud to honor Mr. Miller for his leadership at High Point Regional and his tremendous support of NCHA through the years,” said William Pully, president of NCHA. “Miller’s genuine care and concern for patients and healthcare providers and his willingness to advocate and collaborate with others to improve community health care make him a worthy recipient of this year’s Distinguished Service Award.”
“Exceptional health care” is more than just a phrase at High Point Regional Health System. It is a commitment to the community that is evident at every level of the organization, from the top down. As CEO since 1988, Jeff Miller has created a corporate culture at High Point Regional that places equal priority on patients and employees. Through regular employee recognition and encouragement of staff involvement in decision-making, he has fostered an environment where teamwork and collaboration result in exceptional care. One of a handful of hospitals in our state to be recognized with Magnet designation for excellence in nursing care, High Point Regional has remained dedicated to its original mission of serving the local community, while expanding to serve the healthcare needs of the surrounding region.
Most of Miller’s 33 years in healthcare administration have been spent in North Carolina, and his allegiance to his adopted state is evident in his active participation on numerous boards and programs at the local, regional and state level, including the Chamber of Commerce, the United Way, the Triad Health Alliance, and the North Carolina Health Network.
