July 1, 2003 — Rodney E. Miller Sr., chief executive officer of the Roy L. Schneider Hospital, will be receiving another award.
This time it's the "Early Career Healthcare Executive Award" for the Puerto Rico Region, awarded by the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). Miller, selected by the Regent's Advisory Council, was chosen for "his demonstration of leadership, innovative and creative management," a release said.
ACHE, headquartered in Chicago, has more than 30,000 active members. The award will be presented at a ACHE convention in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, on Friday, July 11.
"As I always say, it's not about me, but we," Miller was quoted in the release. "I am honored … and humbled by the recognition – however, it speaks not only to my commitment to this community but also to the commitment of the dedicated staff of the hospital with whom I work each day to bring the power of care to the community."
Enrique Banquero-Navarro, ACHE Regent for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, said, "Mr. Miller has made a significant impact in the healthcare industry. In a relatively short period of time he has made a tremendous impact on health in Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico region."
Miller also was recognized in the June 2003 issue of Black Enterprise magazine as a "power player on the move." Earlier in 2003 he was inducted into the Health Occupation Students of America Alumni Hall of Fame. In 2002 he was named a "Up and Comer" in healthcare leadership by Modern Healthcare magazine.
