Lexington, KY – The Kentucky Hospitals Circle of Friends Political Action Committee (PAC) presented its awards during the annual Kentucky Hospital Association conference in Lexington on May 11, 2018.  Highlands Health System won the 2017 In-Circle Award, which recognizes the hospital that raised the highest percentage of dollars over their goal in the “101 Beds and More” class.

Highlands’ President and CEO, Bud Warman, accepted the award on behalf of the health system.
The Circle of Friends PAC is instrumental in helping to shape legislation and other governmental policies regarding health care in the state of Kentucky. The committee achieves its results through one-on-one meetings with elected officials, helping to educate them on the struggles of Kentucky hospitals due to mounting numbers of uninsured patients and inadequate reimbursement.
