Bill Pully honored by alma mater
November 27, 2017
Congratulations to Nexsen Pruet's Bill Pully on receiving the "Culture of Health" award at the first National Rural Health Day Celebration Luncheon on the campus of Campbell University.
An excerpt from the announcement from Campbell University reads:
‘Passion’ for rural health
During his time as president of the North Carolina Hospitals Association, Bill Pully was responsible for advocacy and representation for all hospital and health care-related issues in the General Assembly and other state agencies.
One of his most important lobbying victories came in 1990, when he helped win a Medicaid extension for pregnant women and children. He also lobbied heavily for Medicaid extensions under the Affordable Care Act. He was a board member for the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust when it invested a $2 million grant in 2012 to start the Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine at Campbell in 2013. The school’s mission is to educate doctors to serve in rural and medically underserved areas throughout the state and region.
“It’s been a passion for me and many others to serve our rural communities.” Pully said Thursday upon receiving his award. “Rural hospitals can actually do a better job of changing the culture and quality of a patient than large institutions. Rural communities can have familiarity and care about you. They know who you are. I feel so fortunate to have that experience, especially going to school here. And, so thankful to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and its commitment to Campbell.”
