LAFAYETTE, La. – LHC Group, a Lafayette-based national provider of post-acute care services, has honored Chris Duhon, regional operations director for Mississippi, Oklahoma and Missouri, as the company’s 2013 national Servant Leader of the Year. He was selected from a group of 10 finalists as the national winner.
The Servant Leader of the Year is the highest honor an LHC Group employee can receive. LHC Group is a national healthcare company with 8,500 employees operating more than 300 locations in 26 states.
Duhon, who has worked in the healthcare industry since 1991 and in home health for the past 12 years, joined LHC Group in 2002. He started as a registered nurse before progressing to his current role as a regional operations director.
LHC Group presents the Servant Leader of the Year award annually to a leader whose performance demonstrates the company’s core values and produces positive results.
“To be nominated two years in a row is really humbling,” Duhon said. “It takes a team to make it happen, and I’m just a small part of that team. Every day, my team members do the hands-on work of taking care of our patients and deserve the credit. We wouldn’t be where we are without them.”
Keith Myers, LHC Group chairman and CEO, and Don Stelly, president and COO, presented Duhon with the award and congratulated him and his team for their success.
“Chris Duhon and his fellow Servant Leader of the Year finalists represent the best performers in our company,” Stelly said. “We are proud to have them on our team, and thrilled that they will be there to lead us as we continue our mission to provide high-quality health care.
