Hoyt Burdick, MD, chief medical officer for Mountain Health Network (MHN), has been appointed as a member of the national Committee on Clinical Leadership (CCL) by the Board of Trustees of the American Hospital Association (AHA).

The CCL serves a critical role for the AHA as it is charged with providing clinical input to the AHA advocacy and public policy process and serving as a clinical resource on policy issues.

“I am humbled by this incredible opportunity to learn and serve with such a distinguished group of clinical leaders across the nation,” Dr. Burdick said. “I look forward to working with the committee to not only help shape policy on a national scale, but also to share what I learn here at home to help improve the health and well-being of the people we serve.”

Dr. Burdick’s two-year term on the CCL begins Jan. 1, 2023 and runs through Dec. 31, 2025.

“I am extremely pleased that Dr. Burdick has been recognized by the AHA for his clinical knowledge and commitment to advancing policy with this key appointment,” said Kevin Yingling, RPh, MD, FACP, CEO of MHN. “Dr. Burdick has provided invaluable leadership for Mountain Health’s quality and safety efforts, and I know his expertise will advance the committee’s work.”

“We are excited that Dr. Burdick has been recognized nationally for his leadership and clinical knowledge by being appointed to this committee,” said Jim Kaufman, PhD, president and CEO of the West Virginia Hospital Association. “This is a great honor not only for Dr. Burdick, but also for the State of West Virginia as we have been recognized for our efforts with a seat on such a prestigious committee.”
