The National Center for Healthcare Leadership will present its 2018 Gail L. Warden Leadership Excellence Award to Nancy Howell Agee, president and CEO of Carilion Clinic and 2018 AHA chair. "Over the many years that I have known Nancy Agee, I have watched her innovative, thoughtful, and strong leadership transform her organization – during the economic recession – into a preeminent integrated care delivery system, while also addressing many critical national health care issues,” said NCHL President and Board Chair Tim Rice. “With her lifelong commitment to health care, she has excelled at growing a talented team and developing future leaders, and she has been especially effective in addressing gender equity in our field. Nancy has been at the forefront of inspiring change in the ongoing quest to make health care better and more affordable, and improving the field with significant and lasting contributions.” The award will be presented Nov. 13 in Chicago.
