THIE prides itself on working with the best folks we can to ensure the best product and service to our customers.
As a reciprocal exchange, we are owned by our subscribers and they have a vested interest in our success. We are ruled by a board of directors that are your peers. As Texas hospital administrators themselves, our board members are uniquely equipped to understand the needs and challenges of the Texas hospital market. THIE is under the direction of a 13-member board, comprising hospital C-suite leaders from across Texas.
Russell Tippin is one of those leaders. He is your colleague. He is our Board Chair. He is CEO of Permian Regional Medical Center. Russell is highly recognized in his field and we are proud of him for what he has accomplished.
We are highlighting him today because over the past two months he has been recognized for his work through a few different platforms; TORCH’s Gordon Russell Merit Award and through Becker’s Hospital Review.
TORCH (Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals) presents the Gordon Russell Merit Award, annually to a rural hospital CEO who embodies the qualities of service to a community and outstanding achievement by a rural hospital leader and their dedication to their profession.
Next, in the recently released Becker Hospital Review, Russell was recognized again, for the fourth year, as one of the 60 Rural Hospital CEOs to Know. “ The CEOs featured on this list have overcome challenges associated with operating healthcare organizations in a rural community to build a sustainable and thriving hospital.”
Mr. Tippin helms from Permian Regional Medical Center, located about 300 miles outside El Paso, Texas. During his tenure, the medical center opened a fitness and wellness center, as well as a physician clinic in 2015. Mr. Tippin has also led the medical center’s opening of a hospital as part of a nearly $60 million project, and updated MRI technology in 2016.
So, to you Mr. Tippin, we cheer! Congratulations on all you have achieved in the rural community. You are a pleasure to know and work with! Here’s to many more years!
