Sen. Hinojosa wins health award

AUSTIN — CHRISTUS Health, Texas’ largest non-profit health care system, presented Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa with its Eagle Award during an August 9 ceremony. The CHRISTUS Health award is presented each year to a lawmaker who demonstrates outstanding legislative leadership and strong commitment to health care issues.

Hinojosa said it’s important to work toward meeting Texas’ growing health care needs.

“Receiving the CHRISTUS Health Eagle Award is a tremendous honor, especially given CHRISTUS’s reputation as a leader in quality health care delivery. The significant challenges facing lawmakers in health care policy require partnerships — to identify and solve the critical hurdles in providing quality care. It is an honor to receive this distinction from one of the best partners in health care today. That CHRISTUS recognizes my contributions speaks more to their ability to partner with lawmakers and work effectively and collaboratively,” Hinojosa said.
