Dr. Randy Hoover receives James Gibson Award for physician leadership

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The James Gibson Medical Staff Leadership Award for 2017 was recently presented to Dr. Randy Hoover, internist, who has served in numerous leadership roles. The award was announced at the Washington County Medical Staff meeting.

 The award honors an active member of the Washington County Medical Staff who has served in a leadership role providing “steadfast, faithful and tireless dedication to the medical staff at Johnson City Medical Center and improving quality of patient care.” Nominations are made by members of the medical staff and the winner is selected by the JCMC Medical Executive Committee.

Dr. Hoover currently holds the position of past-president of the medical staff at Johnson City Medical Center, after serving as in the roles of president-elect for two years and president from 2015-2017. He has also served as chairman of the Department of Medicine, chairman of the credentials committee, chairman of the medical bylaws committee and chairman of the physician advisory group. In addition, Hoover was a member of the JCMC multidisciplinary peer review committee 2.

It was the second year the medical staff has given out the award, which honors the late Dr. James Gibson, longtime radiologist at Mountain Empire Radiology who retired in 2014. He passed away in February of 2015.

Past winners of the award are Dr. Kais Al Balbissi and Dr. Kyle Colvett.

The Washington County Medical Staff Scholarship was also presented to Katlyn Noel, a student from David Crockett High School in Jonesborough who will be attending East Tennessee State University. She has already done dual enrollment by taking classes at ETSU and David Crockett, maintains a job at Johnson City Medical Center in the dietary department, and plans to become an orthodontist. Her mother is Lanora Davis, a former JCMC team member, and her father is Daniel Noel.

The $1,000 scholarship is funded by the members of the Washington County Medical Staff.
