AUSTIN, Texas, July 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Texas Hospital Association is honoring 12 of Texas' 181 state legislators with the Texas Hospital Advocacy Tribute award in recognition of their accomplishments related to health care during the 81st Regular Session of the Texas Legislature.

"These 12 lawmakers distinguished themselves as true heroes for health care. Through their hard work and dedication, Texas made significant strides in expanding health care coverage, addressing workforce shortages, and improving quality and patient safety," said THA President/CEO Dan Stultz, M.D., FACP, FACHE.

Recipients recognized by THA serving in the Texas Senate include Sen. Kip Averitt (R-Waco), Sen. Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock), Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa (D-Mission) and Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound).

Texas House members receiving the award include Rep. Garnet Coleman (D-Houston), Rep. Dawnna Dukes (D-Austin), Rep. Craig Eiland (D-Galveston), Rep. Susan King (R-Abilene), Rep. Donna Howard (D-Austin), Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham), Rep. Jim Pitts (R-Waxahachie) and Rep. John Zerwas, M.D. (R-Richmond).

The Texas Hospital Association created the Texas Hospital Advocacy Tribute award in 1997 to honor state legislators and other public officials who demonstrate outstanding leadership on issues important to hospitals and health systems.

Stultz commended the award recipients for their contributions on a number of key health care achievements, including:

  • Small businesses and low-income individuals now will be able to find more affordable health insurance coverage through a new reinsurance program and the high-risk pool;
  • Texas nursing schools can enroll more students,
