In April 2016, John Heer, Jr. ‘85, who has received numerous honors for excellence in the field of health care administration including the 2014 Leonard Duce Award, accepted his most recent accolade with the Baldrige Foundation's 2016 Harry S. Hertz (HSH)Leadership Award. The HSH Leadership Award given by the Baldrige Foundation recognizes an individual whose behaviors provide a role model for others.

Recipients of the award personify the HSH Award Core Value Attributes and Leadership Behaviors: visionary leadership, customer-focused excellence, organizational and personal learning, valuing workforce members and partners, agility, managing for innovation, management by fact, societal responsibility, focus on results and creating value, and systems perspective.
