CaroMont CEO Recognized by the American Hospital Association


Luckett Receives 2016 Grassroots Champion Award

The American Hospital Association Grassroots Champion Award, which is presented each year to one person from each state, was created to recognize those hospital leaders who most effectively educate elected officials on major issues affecting the hospital’s role in the community, who successfully delivered the hospital’s message in helping garner community support for hospitals and who has made being an advocate for patients, hospitals and the community a priority.

Since Luckett assumed his position as President and Chief Executive Officer of CaroMont Health in 2013, he has engaged the community and forged relationships with legislators to share information about healthcare issues and policies that impact the citizens of Gaston County.

"We depend on strong local voices to help tell the story of health systems as economic anchors and trusted partners in the communities they serve,” said Bill Pully, NCHA president. “Doug Luckett has done an outstanding job of engaging community leaders in a clearer understanding of our collective mission to improve access to quality care and promote healthier communities. NCHA is pleased to honor him with the Grassroots Champion Award.”

The AHA is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities. Nearly 5,000 hospitals, health care systems, networks, other providers of care and 43,000 individual members come together to form the AHA.
