B’nai B’rith International will proudly present the prestigious Charles S. Lauer National Healthcare Award to David M. Dill, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lifepoint Health, on November 30. This event, now in its 40th year, honors those in the healthcare field who demonstrate enlightened civic concern, philanthropic leadership and a commitment to excellence.

David Dill is chairman and chief executive officer of Lifepoint Health, a diversified healthcare delivery network consisting of 62 community-based acute hospitals, more than 60 rehabilitation and behavioral health hospitals, and more than 250 additional sites of care. In this role, he is responsible for the development and oversight of Lifepoint’s strategic priorities and organizational growth, advancing the company’s mission and strengthening its culture enterprise-wide.

David serves as an influential voice for healthcare in communities across the nation and is passionate about keeping high-quality care close to home.

With these insights, he has helped to educate the industry on shaping policies that ensure that the needs of all patients – from those in large urban areas to those in small rural communities – are met.

Most recently, David was appointed to serve on the Tennessee Rural Health Care Task Force, which was formed by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee to further the administration’s mission to serve rural communities across the state. His knowledge of the challenges and opportunities that face families in rural areas is helping advance equitable and quality healthcare and improve the health and welfare of people in underserved communities throughout Tennessee.

David joined Lifepoint in 2007 as executive vice president and chief financial officer before serving as president and chief operating officer from 2009 to 2018. Before joining Lifepoint, David was executive vice president of Fresenius Medical Care North America and chief executive officer in the East Division of Fresenius Medical Care Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA. Prior to this, he served as executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer of Renal Care Group, Inc.
