LifePoint CEO Bill Carpenter receives lifetime achievement award

The Federation of American Hospitals awarded the Mike Bromberg Lifetime Achievement Award to Brentwood, Tenn.-based LifePoint Health Chairman and CEO Bill Carpenter Oct. 9.

Since taking over as CEO of LifePoint in 2006, Mr. Carpenter "has been the driving force behind the company's mission of making communities healthier and his leadership has ensured that patients in rural areas have access to high quality healthcare close to home, no matter where that home is," the FAH said.

The organization said Mr. Carpenter embodies many of the same qualities of former FAH leader Mike Bromberg, who led the organization from 1969 to 1994. He died in August 2016 at the age of 78.

Mr. Carpenter revealed plans in September to retire after LifePoint completes its merger with RCCH HealthCare Partners, also in Brentwood. After retiring, he will join the combined entity's board of directors.
