DFWHC Press Statement on Dr. Ron Anderson


IRVING, TX – The following Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council (DFWHC) press statement was issued today by DFWHC President and Chief Executive Officer W. Stephen Love:

“After learning of the loss of Dr. Ron Anderson, we are all grieving for a man who was a giant in the North Texas health care delivery system. Arthur Schopenhauer, a German philosopher, once said, “Compassion is the basis of all morality,” and Dr. Anderson was the most compassionate person I have ever met. He championed the plight of the most vulnerable in our society and many lives have been saved in North Texas because of his clinical caring compassion for others. Ron supported local, state and national health care organizations by bringing value and expertise on delivering the best health care to all patients. He served as Chair of the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council (DFWHC) in 1992, received the Boone Powell Senior Award of Excellence in 2002, and has been serving on our DFWHC Foundation Board of Trustees since its inception. We are all better people because we knew Dr. Ron Anderson. We need to celebrate his life by continuing his mission of social justice, fairness and health care excellence.”

DFWHC is an 88 hospital and 95 associate member trade organization with more than 45 years of service to North Texas healthcare. Governed by a Board of Trustees made up of hospital executive officers, the hospital trade association is committed to the continuous improvement of patient care.
