HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals are proud to announce that board member, Jeff Halloin, has received the 2020 Trustee Award from the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA).
“I am honored to receive this award, but it is reflective of the work done by members of both boards,” said Halloin. “Without all their good work through the years, this recognition would not have happened.”
The Trustee Award has been in existence for more than 60 years and recognizes individuals who demonstrate an exemplary commitment to his or her hospital(s) and community.
“With more than a decade of service to the HSHS hospital boards and numerous committee and board assignments within the hospital and throughout the community, Jeff Halloin is well deserving of this award,” said Eric Borgerding, WHA President and CEO.
Halloin has served as a voluntary board member for HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital for a total of 12 years with an additional 5 years on the HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital board of directors. He currently serves as chair of the boards of directors for both HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals, a role he has held since 2018. He also leads the Board Executive Committee and the Governance Committee for each hospital.
“The board members have had a front row seat to the hard work the HSHS colleagues are doing during the pandemic,” said Halloin. “They are the folks who really embody the hospital Sisters’ mission to care for all people, so while this award may have my name on it, they are the ones we should celebrate.”
Halloin was nominated for the WHA 2020 Trustee Award by Andrew Bagnall, president and CEO of HSHS Wisconsin, which includes 6 hospitals across the state, and Mary Starmann-Harrison, president and CEO of Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) based in Springfield, Illinois.
In her nomination letter, Starmann-Harrison said Halloin has not deterred in his dedication to the hospitals during this extremely challenging year.
“He has helped us make some major decisions to overcome many unforeseen challenges,” she said. “Jeff is a true leader who is passionate about improving health care and helping our communities.”
Besides his commitment to the hospitals, Halloin serves on numerous community boards, including the newly formed Steering Committee of the Greater Chippewa Valley COVID-19 Task Force, which collaborates with the hospitals.
