Community Hospital Corporation Announces Stephanie Hyde, CEO of Tyler ContinueCARE Hospital, Receives President’s Leadership Excellence Award
Plano, TX (August 8, 2013) – Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) is proud to announce the 2013 recipient of the fourth annual President’s Leadership Excellence Award. Stephanie Hyde, RN, MSN, serves as CEO of Tyler ContinueCARE Hospital, Tyler, Texas, and was recognized as a motivating and visionary leader who possesses relationship-building skills and a contagious passion for enhancing health care in the community.
“It is my pleasure to present the President’s Leadership Excellence Award to Stephanie,” says Michael D. Williams, CHC president and CEO. “Her leadership and vast expertise helped drive the current direction of Tyler ContinueCARE.”
In 2004, Hyde was instrumental in the launch of Tyler ContinueCARE, a joint venture between CHC and Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics. A 51-bed long-term acute care facility, Tyler ContinueCARE provides intensive and complex medical treatment for patients who require longer hospital stays. Hyde’s leadership has resulted in several improvements over recent years, including moving patient satisfaction from 82% to 90%, improving staff productivity and attaining physician satisfaction scores of 3.67 on a 4.0 scale.
Hyde was nominated for the President’s Leadership Excellence Award by Dennis Jordan, RN, Interim Director of Quality Management. Jordan shares, “Stephanie has developed a culture here that embraces meeting patient needs and supporting families during very trying and difficult times of illness. She supports staff and ensures they have the tools and opportunities available to them for personal and professional growth.” In addition to her role as CEO, Hyde supports and encourages Tyler ContinueCARE’s involvement with the East Texas Crisis Center and Saint Paul Children’s Foundation. She also volunteers with the Kyle Lake Foundation and mentors students in the Master’s in Nursing Administration program at The University of Texas at Tyler.
Williams surprised Hyde by recognizing her achievement at a brunch held on August 8 at Mother Frances Hospital. She was presented with a Waterford crystal bowl, $500 gift card, and a framed certificate of appreciation. The event also recognized Alvin Petty, patient care associate, winner of CHC’s 2013 Dan Wilford Award for his outstanding service to Tyler ContinueCARE and the community.
