Memorial Health Controller Nominated

Ohio Hospital Association Annual Award Nominee is Phil Eley

Memorial Health has nominated System Controller Phil Eley, MBA, as their nominee for the 2016 Ohio Hospital Association’s (OHA) Albert E. Dyckes Health Care Worker of the Year Award. It is presented annually to one Ohio healthcare employee who personifies leadership, reflects the mission and values of his or her organization, routinely performs work in an exemplary manner, and gives back to the community.

Eley oversees accounting for the entire Memorial Health system, including Memorial Hospital, Memorial Gables, Memorial Medical Group, and Memorial Health Foundation. His work has contributed to Memorial receiving Auditor of State Awards for the last four years.

“Since Phil came to Memorial in 1998, he has worked closely with his team, department directors, and hospital administrators to manage our accounting during a period of steady growth and change – in both Memorial and in the healthcare industry,” explains Chip Hubbs, President and CEO of Memorial Health.

The nomination calls Eley out as an extraordinary leader who follows the mission and values at Memorial by demonstrating ethical behavior, fostering an environment of courtesy and support, and using our resources efficiently and wisely. He was also commended for taking the initiative for continuous improvement, with superior work that reinforces Memorial’s goal of providing high quality healthcare, and providing excellent service to the community.

Eley serves as Treasurer on the Board of Trustees for Habitat for Humanity of Union County, where he also lends a hand during construction of homes for families in need. He is an active volunteer at St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Marysville, where he has served on its Board of Endowment and its Financial Review Committee.

Through Member Mission Outreach, in cooperation with Lutheran Social Services, Eley has traveled to impoverished areas of Southeastern Ohio, to work with others to complete home repairs or build home ramps for persons with mobility issues. He is also a familiar face as a parent volunteer at school events for his daughters, who attend St. John’s School and Marysville High School.

All nominees for this prestigious statewide award will gather at the annual OHA Recognition Dinner on June 14 in Columbus, where the winner will be announced.
