The awards recognize men and women who have made remarkable contributions and will leave lasting legacies to their respective health systems, hospitals and communities.
Dr. Gold became UNMC's chancellor on Feb. 1. The Becker's announcement references his "previous accomplishments as chancellor of the University of Toledo's health science campus," adding that his work there suggests his leadership skills and vision for health care delivery will serve him and the University of Nebraska well.
The award announcement notes that under Dr. Gold's leadership, the University of Toledo opened the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center and the Gardner-McMaster Parkinson Center, as well as added an orthopedic center, minimally invasive surgery center, medical pavilion and student library.
Dr. Gold and other awardees will each receive a token of appreciation for their hard work and service, along with recognition at the fifth Annual Becker's Hospital Review May Conference, which will take place May 15-17 in Chicago.
Congratulations! Quite an honor! Carol Russell
