Roger Green, vice president of strategy, policy and communications for HealthEast Care System, was honored Sept. 10 for the ethical practices he brings to the workplace and for his contributions to his parish and his home community, Woodbury.
Green, who was Woodbury’s Citizen of the Year for 2007, was one of 10 business people presented a “Leading with Faith Award” by Archbishop John Nienstedt.
Nienstedt is the publisher of The Catholic Spirit, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
The Catholic Spirit initiated the annual awards program seven years ago in the aftermath of the scandals at Enron, WorldCom and other corporations to affirm and shine a spotlight on successful business leaders who demonstrate Catholic values.
Over the past several years, Green has spent thousands of hours providing hands-on planning and support to more than 60 different organizational projects reflecting business development, social service, education, health care, civic and faith-based activities.
His work with the Lions Club, Boy Scouts/Explorers, City of Woodbury, Transfiguration Catholic Church, Face to Face Health and Counseling Center, Global Health Ministries and Pen Pal Reading Program caught the review committee’s attention.
Nominations were solicited from throughout the 12-county archdiocese, which include the Twin Cities and suburbs.
Winners were selected in three categories: large businesses, small businesses and non-profit organizations. Green was one of the large business category recipients.
HealthEast Care System is a community-focused, non-profit health care system includes Bethesda Hospital, St. John’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Woodwinds Health Campus in Woodbury, as well as outpatient services, clinics, pharmacies, home care and transportation services.
HealthEast is the largest, locally-owned health care organization in the Twin Cities’ East Metro with 6,700 employees and 1,400 physicians on staff.
