The award for trustee excellence recognizes one urban hospital and one rural hospital trustee who have made an exemplary commitment to their hospital and contributions to improve his or her hospital’s service to its patients and community. Since its establishment, this award has recognized a number of distinguished health care leaders throughout Nevada.
Seevers has served on Renown Health boards for nearly 18 years. During his tenure, he influenced transformational health care reform and increased patient access to care to address the unprecedented, increased needs for health care services in the community.
In 1995, Seevers played an integral role in establishing Senior Care Plus, the first and largest Medicare Advantage Plan in northern Nevada to improve access to care for seniors. He also helped in bringing new services, such as the region’s first and only TomoTherapy cancer radiation system, the first da Vinci Robotic Surgery Program, the first and only Bi-plane Angiography diagnostic system for stroke patients and the first and only Chest Pain Center using the high-speed D-SPECT heart camera, decreasing the diagnosis time for patients by six times.
