Three Centerstone Leaders Honored as Health Care Heroes

Nashville, Tenn.—Three Centerstone leaders have been named among the most influential in Nashville’s healthcare industry. Each year, the Nashville Business Journal honors an elite group of area leaders through its “Health Care Heroes” list. The annual award acknowledges local innovators, strategists and caregivers whose contributions to healthcare help make the industry one of the top drivers of Nashville’s economy.

This year, Centerstone is proud to have three influential leaders on the prestigious list. They are:

  • Dr. Ralph Barr, Psychiatrist and Regional Medical Authority for the Southwest Region – winner in the Physician category
  • Becky Stoll, Director of Crisis Services and Crisis Management Strategies – winner in the Mentor category
  • Ramona Rhodes, Vice President for Marketing and Public Relations – winner in the Behind the Scenes category

“Having three individuals from the same organization named to the Health Care Hero list is quite rare, if not unheard of,” said Dr. Bob Vero, CEO of Centerstone. “We’re so proud of the work Ralph, Becky and Ramona do every single day for Centerstone. We’re lucky to have them on our team and they deserve every bit of this recognition, and more.”

The 2011 Health Care Heroes will be featured in the August 19 edition of the Nashville Business Journal. In addition, the winners will be honored at a special awards luncheon on August 18 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.
