HOT SPRINGS Dr. Kevin Hale is the recent recipient of Capella Healthcare’s inaugural Physician Leadership Award, which recognizes physician leadership across all five of Capella’s Pillars: people, service, quality, growth and financial stability. The award was presented in Nashville, Tenn., by Capella Healthcare at its annual Leadership Conference in August.
Hale is beloved and respected by his peers at National Park Medical Center, as well as community members throughout the Hot Springs and Lake Hamilton area.
In 2009, Hale used the painful experience of the loss of his son Kameron to form an organization that makes a daily impact on youth throughout the Hot Springs area. The Kamo’s Kids Foundation actively works with community organizations, the juvenile court system and school counselors to provide a wide variety of needs to underserved children.
In recognition of Hale’s receipt of the Physician Leadership Award, Capella Healthcare made a donation to the Kamo’s Kids Foundation, which is guided by three principles that represented Kameron’s outlook on life: “Kourage” to do what is right, “Kompassion” for others and “Kommitment” to Excellence.
