John T. Lane, a dedicated member of NYU Winthrop’s Board of Directors, was one of 30 honorees to receive a Distinguished Trustee Award from The United Hospital Fund – a health services research and philanthropic organization whose primary mission is to shape positive change in healthcare for the people of New York. At the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in May, honorees were recognized for their leadership, generosity and extraordinary service to not-for-profit and municipal hospitals in New York City, nearby New Jersey and Long Island communities.
This is the 23rd year the Fund has presented Distinguished Trustee Awards. The honorees included trustees from the Fund’s beneficiary not-for-profit hospitals, New York’s municipal hospital system and hospitals participating in the United Hospital Fund/Greater New York Hospital Association quality improvement initiatives.
“A great strength of New York’s health system is its continuing tradition of exceptional voluntary leadership,” said Fund President James R. Tallon, Jr. “These leaders understand and are sensitive to their communities’ needs, and they can bring their fresh perspectives on a range of issues, from the patient experience to fiscal responsibility. The trustees we are honoring today are among the city’s best at helping shape many critical healthcare discussions. That’s why we at the United Hospital Fund feel privileged to have this opportunity to recognize the exemplary efforts of this remarkable group of voluntary leaders.”
