Lexington Regional Health Center CEO Honored with Statewide Award
LEXINGTON, NE - Lexington Regional Health Center's CEO, Leslie Marsh, received the Nebraska Hospital Association's highest honor at the NHA 90th Annual Convention in late October.
The Excellence in Service Award is presented to a hospital or health system administrator who has demonstrated outstanding administrative skills, professional performance, health care organization involvement and significant leadership, benefitting their communities through health care excellence.
Marsh attributes her success to great teamwork. "It's an honor to work with the people that I work with, and to serve the community that I serve. It makes me happy to be here. We have a great team of experts, and I trust and enjoy working with them," Marsh said. "Hospitals are changing. It used to just be a structure, a building where people came when they were sick. It is so much more than that now. It is all about understanding what people need, and working together to create healthy communities."
Amber Ackerson, Vice President on Lexington Regional Health Center's Board of Directors said, "It feels like an extended family at the hospital, and Leslie lives that. That is exactly what she embodies. It may seem easy to say that's what you do, but I think anybody who's been in leadership knows that actually treating everybody like they are family - from employee to patient - and making sure they feel it, is actually incredibly difficult, and that is something she has embodied. In doing so, the employees have embodied that culture too, and it's something you can feel the moment you walk in the door."
