For the first time in its history, the Washington State Hospital Association awarded two prestigious Joe Hopkins Memorial Awards for outstanding leadership: Renee Jensen, CEO of Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma, and Tom Jensen, CEO of Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen.
Winners are chosen by a committee of past winners, who seek to recognize those who represent the Joe Hopkins’ leadership, commitment and spirit.
“Through their tireless commitment, their creativity, and their sheer determination, Renee and Tom have ensured that their communities will have health care,” said WSHA board chair Gregg Davidson. “The awards committee was unanimous in their desire to see both of them recognized. It’s always risky to make an exception, but exceptional people deserve to be recognized.”
The full press release will be sent on Monday, but in the meantime, we’re excited to share a few pictures from the event!
