HealthTrust Europe Officer Recognised as UK Solicitor of the Year

Birmingham, England—April 18, 2017—HealthTrust Europe, a subsidiary of HealthTrust Purchasing Group, L.P. and part of Hospital Corporation of America, is proud to announce that Chief Legal and Ethics Officer, Dale Robinson, has been presented with the UK Solicitor of the Year Award in Administrative and Public Law by Finance Monthly.

The Finance Monthly Law Awards 2017 celebrate and recognise excellence from law firms and legal professionals who have consistently excelled in all aspects of their work and set new standards of client service. Following a lengthy nomination and voting process, the international publication compiled a definitive list of industry leaders representative of respected individuals and firms from all over the world.

During the last five years, Robinson has advanced from a mid-level position at HealthTrust Europe to a member of the Executive Board, making impact across all operational areas of the business and shaping the legal function into providing the vital role it plays today. Over the last 12 months, he has played a crucial role in the successful establishment of the HealthTrust Europe committed group purchasing model, using a proven model from US-based parent company, HealthTrust, and a focus on driving value (Quality, Safety, Service and Price) – obtaining high-quality products and services at the best price for the NHS in England and Wales and the private healthcare market.

“Dale has been instrumental in the growth of HealthTrust Europe and the successful replication of our committed and aligned group purchasing model in the UK. His knowledge and understanding of UK law and the healthcare market has helped us shape our business strategy and he is recognised as a critical member of the Executive Team,” said Ed Jones, President and Chief Executive Officer at HealthTrust.

In the UK, both HealthTrust Europe and HCA Healthcare UK’s legal functions work closely together, fostering a collaborative environment where colleagues can discuss new ideas and access a wealth of experience and support across their peers.

“Dale is a valued member of our legal team. He has a wealth of procurement expertise with the ability to apply knowledge in a variety of scenarios, ensuring the business operates in line with our rigorous Ethics and Compliance Programme. He demonstrates integrity and acts as an ambassador for our stance on ethical business practise,” commented Jasy Loyal, Executive Director/VP of Legal Services at HCA Healthcare UK.
