DOWNTOWN AKRON — The Foundation for Healthy Communities of the Ohio Hospital Association has recognized Akron General Health System’s Dr. Thomas “Tim” Stover as the 2013 Wellness Warrior, a designation that recognizes a hospital or health system executive who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and commitment to wellness promotion in Ohio.

The Wellness Warrior is an individual who has championed the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle to hospital employees and their local community, and who has successfully showcased hospitals as leaders in health promotion. Under Stover’s leadership, Akron General Health System has been recognized as a national leader in health and wellness, according to Akron General officials.

The award winners were chosen by the Foundation for Healthy Communities’ Board of Directors following independent review of nearly 50 nominations by executives who volunteered from academic, business, health, medical and nonprofit organizations. This is the second year the Wellness Warrior, Wellness @ Work and Community Champion awards have been presented, and each comes with a cash award to further the recipient hospitals’ wellness efforts.
