Modern Healthcare Selects MedAssets As Recipient For Community Leadership Award

MedAssets (NASDAQ: MDAS) today announced that Modern Healthcare has selected the company’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, John Bardis, as the recipient of the first annual Community Leadership Award. The award honors top healthcare executives for charitable outreach work either performed individually or through their organizations to improve the health and well being of people, patients, communities and community members.

“I am humbled and honored to accept this award on behalf of the thousands of MedAssets employees who make it a daily habit to help others,” said John Bardis, MedAssets. “Corporate charitable giving is engrained within our company culture, directly aligns with the sacred healthcare mission of our clients, and reflects our strong belief that everyone is entitled to treatment that is dignified and loving. This recognition also reflects the immense power of the thousands of healthcare supplier organizations with whom we share a common belief that corporate America has a civic responsibility to give back and lend a hand to those less fortunate in a time of need.”

Productive Culture that Inspires Employees

Since its inception, MedAssets has had a large focus on charitable outreach. The core values of the company drives a culture that largely supports many charities, even allowing employees to take off work as paid-time-off to serve at a qualified charitable organization through the MedAssets Heart and Soul Program. MedAssets employees, clients and suppliers provide ongoing support for the following charities:

Hire Heroes USA has helped over 575 veterans find successful careers and assisted 2,300 veterans to gain employment skills, medical treatment, and financial support.

The American Fallen Soldiers Project: A 501(c)3 non-profit organization that makes available, at no cost to the family, an original portrait of their fallen loved one by artist Phil Taylor that fully captures the soldier’s appearance and personality. The American Fallen Soldiers Project was formed to provide comfort and healing to the grieving families of America’s fallen military.

Each year, MCF becomes a home and provides hope to street children, orphans, abandoned, abused, HIV and AIDS affected and infected, desperate and neglected children, who have nowhere to call home and no one to care for them.

MedShare International: A non-profit, Atlanta-based organization dedicated to improving healthcare and the environment through the efficient recovery and redistribution of surplus medical supplies and equipment to those most in need.

About the Modern Healthcare Community Leadership Award

After a nomination process, for seven weeks, Modern Healthcare readers were invited to vote on ten finalists all of which were leaders from esteemed healthcare industry-focused organizations. Entries were judged on three criteria: extent of departure from core job responsibilities; voluntary nature of the work individually or through the organization or corporation, and demonstrated positive impact of the work.
