WHA President and CEO Eric Borgerding recently presented Jeffrey Halloin of HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital, Eau Claire, and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital, Chippewa Falls, with the 2020 Trustee Award. For more than 60 years, WHA has presented a Trustee Award to an individual who has made an exemplary commitment to his or her hospital and community.
Halloin has served as a board member for HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital for 12 years. He currently serves as chair of the board for both Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals and has helped align the two boards into one unit. He is a member of the HSHS Audit and Integrity Committee and leads the board’s Executive Committee and Governance Committee.
Halloin has served on numerous community boards. He serves as the secretary of the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Eau Claire and recently became a member of the Steering Committee of the Greater Chippewa Valley COVID Task Force.
Halloin was nominated by Andrew Bagnall, president and CEO of HSHS Wisconsin and Mary Starmann-Harrison, president and CEO of Hospital Sisters Health System. Starmann-Harrison wrote, “This year has been extremely challenging in health care, but Jeff has not been deterred. He has helped us make some major decisions to overcome many unforeseen challenges. Jeff is a true leader who is passionate about improving health care and helping our communities.”
Borgerding is proud to present this award to such a deserving candidate. As part of this recognition, WHA will also donate $250 to the charity of Halloin’s choice.
