The AHA today presented two federal health care leaders with awards for outstanding service to the health care field. Capt. James Hancock, M.D., commanding officer of Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, received the Award for Excellence, while Lt. Col. Johnathan Compton, M.D., deputy director of medical services at the Air Force Medical Operations Agency in San Antonio, received the Special Achievement Award. “The women and men with our federal health system are an invaluable resource to our nation,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “They provide critical care to so many, including those currently on the front lines of combat, those who honorably served our country, their families, and our Native American population. The knowledge, experience and expertise that these caregivers share with their civilian colleagues continues to improve our nation’s health care system. We are pleased to honor Capt. James Hancock and Lt. Col. Johnathan Compton.” For more information, see the AHA news release.
