Date:10/15/2007

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nine of Texas' 181 legislators are being honored with the Texas Hospital Advocacy Tribute award in recognition of their accomplishments on behalf of health care during the 80th Session of the Texas Legislature. The Texas Hospital Association created the award in 1997 to honor state legislators and other public officials who demonstrate outstanding leadership on issues important to hospitals and health systems.

Recipients recognized by THA serving in the Texas Senate include Sens. Robert Deuell, M.D. (R-Greenville), Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock), Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound) and Royce West (D-Dallas).

Texas House members receiving the award include Reps. Garnet Coleman (D-Houston), Dianne Delisi (R-Temple), Donna Howard, RN (D-Austin), Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) and Sylvester Turner (D-Houston).

The awards were announced during THA's Annual Leadership Conference, which is convening in Austin this week.

"Each one of these legislators played an important role in sponsoring and passing legislation that impacts the health and well being of every Texan," said THA President/CEO Dan Stultz, M.D., FACP, FACHE. "In addition to acknowledging the state's growing problem of the uninsured, the 80th Texas Legislature passed a comprehensive Medicaid reform bill, increased funding for trauma and emergency services, addressed the current nursing shortage and end-of-life care issues, and worked to make health care costs more transparent. THA is honored to recognize these legislators for their outstanding service, and we look forward to continuing our work to bring every Texas family closer to obtaining accessible and affordable health care coverage."

Founded in 1930, the Texas Hospital Association is the leadership organization and principal advocate for the state's hospitals and health care systems. Based in Austin, THA enhances its members' abilities to improve accessibility, quality and cost-effectiveness of health care for all Texans. One of the largest hospital associations in the country, THA represents more than 85 percent of the state's hospitals and health care systems, which employ some 320,000 health care professionals statewide.
