TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (December 9, 2010) –
The Tallahassee Community College Foundation has announced the leadership for its Health Care Provision and Excellence Campaign.
Chairing the campaign is Doug Bell, who will also serve as the campaign’s Board Division Chair. The Foundation has also announced that John Hogan, President & CEO of Capital Health Plan (CHP), will serve as honorary chair.
Bell is a lawyer with Pennington, Moore, Wilkinson, Bell & Dunbar. His primary area of practice is legislative affairs, and he represents various Fortune 500 companies, local governments and not-for-profit organizations before the Florida Legislature and executive branches of government.
“It is an honor to be a part of such an important campaign which will, among other things, pay for the latest health care training technology and allow TCC to address the nursing and allied health care professional shortages,” said Bell.
Eugene Lamb, chair of TCC’s District Board of Trustees, said Bell will be “an excellent campaign chair.”
In addition to the Health Care Provision and Excellence Campaign, Bell serves the TCC Foundation as president of its Board of Directors and has served on the TCC Foundation’s board for 11 years.
Hogan, who will serve as the campaign’s honorary chair, has led Capital Health Plan for over 30 years, from its initial development as its only employee to its current status as one of the area’s largest health care organizations.
CHP has been consistently recognized by the National Committee on Quality Assurance as one of “America’s Best Health Plans.”
Prior to his association with CHP, Hogan held a variety of health planning positions in health systems agencies in the Southeast. In 2010, he was selected to receive the Lifetime Leadership Award from the Leadership Tallahassee program of the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce.
TCC District Board of Trustees member Karen Moore, said, “John Hogan is the ideal person to lead TCC’s Health Care Provision and Excellence Campaign as honorary chair. His name is synonymous with quality health care in our region and his energy and innovation make him an invaluable resource for the College as it enters one of the most exciting, albeit crucial fund-raising campaigns in its history.”
The Health Care Provision and Excellence Campaign will enable Tallahassee Community College to continue serving the community by educating future outstanding health care professionals. This campaign supports TCC’s expanding health care programs by seeking investments for facilities, state-of-the-art technology, student support services, scholarships and more. The College plans to increase health care programs enrollment by close to 100 percent over the next five years.
In March of 2009, TCC broke ground on the new Ghazvini Center for Health Care Education set to open for the Fall 2011 semester. The 88,000 square foot Center will be located in the heart of the Tallahassee’s medical corridor, thanks to a 14.5-acre land grant from Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.
