MONTGOMERY, AL – Beth Anderson, administrator of USA Medical Center, was recently honored as an American Hospital Association (AHA) Grassroots Champion at the Alabama Hospital Association’s (AlaHA) annual meeting.
As the 2016 Grassroots Champion, Anderson was recognized for her exceptional leadership in generating grassroots and community support of the important mission of hospitals. The Grassroots Champion award is presented annually to one individual from each state, with winners nominated by the state associations and final selections made by the AHA.
“This year’s winner is always one of the first to encourage her employees to get engaged and make contacts with lawmakers on issues of importance to hospitals and their patients,” said Donald E. Williamson, MD, president of the Alabama Hospital Association. “We are grateful for her dedication to ensuring good health care in our state and nation.”
An employee of USA Medical Center since 1990, Anderson is a nurse by training and has been active on both the local and state level in health related leadership positions, including serving as the local council president for the Alabama Hospital Association and as a member of its board of trustees. She is active in the Mobile community in a number of organizations, such as the local United Way, St. Paul’s School, Mobile AIDs Support Services and the Mobile Opera Guild.
Founded in 1921, the Alabama Hospital Association is a statewide trade organization that assists member hospitals in effectively serving the health care needs of Alabama, through advocacy, representation, education and service.
