Main Line Health (MLH) President and CEO Jack Lynch, was recently recognized by the Hospital and Health System Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) for his leadership in health care advocacy for the Philadelphia region. President and CEO of HAP, Andy Carter, presented the award to Lynch for his influential role in successfully advancing the hospital and health system community’s state and federal agenda, and for being an active leader in reaching out to his colleagues in the Southeast Pennsylvania region to encourage their support.
“Decisions made by our elected officials affect the way health care is delivered, and also impact health care jobs,” explained Carter. “During the next several years, health care issues will continue to be at the forefront of both national and state political agendas. Hospital priorities must be clearly focused and the hospital community voice must be strong and vigilant in both Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. Mr. Lynch serves as a primary example that strong leaders can ensure the future wellbeing of our hospital and health system community.”
HAP, based in Harrisburg, PA, is a statewide membership service organization that advocates for nearly 240 Pennsylvania acute and specialty care, primary care, subacute care, long-term care, home health, and hospice providers, as well as the patients and communities they serve.
