HealthTrust’s Janet McCain, Senior Director of Business Diversity, received the 2023 Corris Boyd Diversity in Healthcare Leadership Award from The Federation of American Hospitals (FAH) for her accomplishments in leading and encouraging inclusive opportunities for others in the healthcare industry.
“It is a great honor to receive this award as it reflects our commitment and accomplishments throughout HealthTrust and with our members and partners,” said McCain. “Our members, and the communities they serve, benefit when we empower diverse backgrounds and partner to build a more inclusive healthcare supply chain.”
McCain began working at HealthTrust in March 2012 as the Director of Business Diversity. Since then, HealthTrust’s Supplier Diversity Program has grown from $154M to approximately $495M in diversity spend. In her role, she focuses on promoting and building relationships with minority, women, veteran and LGBTQ+ owned businesses – working with sourcing teams, clinicians, account teams and more to identify opportunities while simultaneously guiding diverse businesses in obtaining and retaining contracts with HealthTrust members.
“Janet is extremely deserving of this award,” said Ed Jones, President and CEO of HealthTrust. “She consistently leads by example and inspires others to advocate on behalf of diverse suppliers during the sourcing process. As a result of her impact, the suppliers we work with better represent the communities we serve – benefitting not only our members, but also our industry as a whole.”
The Corris Boyd Leadership Award honors an individual or company that has made an outstanding contribution in fostering leadership in the healthcare industry. FAH established the award in 2007 to honor the late Corris Boyd, who spent his career working with hospital management companies and group purchasing organizations. Boyd committed his life to diversity and excellence in healthcare success and was devoted to the success of minority- and women-owned business enterprises. McCain was presented with the award at the FAH Public Policy Conference and Business Exposition on March 6, 2023 in Las Vegas.
