Dennis Ragsdale Recognized for his work with Children’s Hospital
Dennis Ragsdale was recently honored by the Tennessee Hospital Association (THA) for his more than four decades of devoted service to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
Ragsdale, former Board Chairman for Children’s Hospital, received the Meritorious Service Award, which recognizes exceptional leadership and service by individuals in support of their hospitals and health systems.
“Dennis’ commitment to the hospital is beyond any that I have witnessed in my professional career,” said Keith Goodwin, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital. “His command of both the business and clinical aspects of Children’s Hospital set him apart from others. We are so pleased he has been recognized for the work he has done for us.”
The award was presented during the 75th annual meeting of the THA—a not-for-profit membership association that serves as an advocate for hospitals, health systems and other healthcare organization and the patients and patient families they serve.
Each year, the THA recognizes individuals and organizations whose service has significantly promoted the goals of the association or its members. Nominations for the awards are assessed anonymously by THA members.
