GREENEVILLE, TN – The Tennessee Hospital Association has presented Carlyle Walton, Takoma Adventist Hospital’s president and chief executive officer, with two awards honoring his leadership.
Walton, who is president of the THA’s northeast district, was presented with plaques at the group’s annual meeting in Nashville in late September.
Walton was presented an award on behalf of his district for raising the highest percentage of a PAC (Political Action Committee) goal, and for being the first district to reach its PAC goal.
The 15-hospital northeast district had a goal of $8,500, but has raised more than $12,450 to date, according to Suzette Crutchfield, assistant director of government affairs and exhibits for the THA. There is a statewide goal of $90,000 for the 165 member hospitals, she noted.
