Hackensack Meridian Health, New Jersey’s most comprehensive and integrated health network, is pleased to announce that John K. Lloyd, FACHE, co-CEO, and Joseph Simunovich, co-chairman of the Hackensack Meridian Health Board of Trustees, were recognized Wednesday in the inaugural ICON HONORS awards by NJBIZ for outstanding leadership.

Mr. Lloyd, former president and CEO of Meridian Health, was honored for his role in creating one of New Jersey’s largest health care networks which includes 13 hospitals, 6,000 physicians, 150 outpatient facilities and 28,000 team members.

“I am honored to be recognized by NJBIZ today and will continue our commitment to providing a true continuum of care for all of our patients,’’ Mr. Lloyd said.

Under Mr. Lloyd’s leadership, Meridian Health grew to deliver a full array of services to the community – including New Jersey’s first “health village’’ – well in advance of trends to move care out of hospitals. At Hackensack Meridian Health, he has concentrated on expanding the network into new realms, including the growth of urgent care centers.
Joseph Simunovich, co-chair of Hackensack Meridian Health’s Board of Trustees, was also recognized by NJBIZ Icon Honors for leadership roles within the network and in a new mission – serving as chairman of the founding Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine Board of Governors.

“Today’s event celebrates the leadership that both Joe and John are known for – a commitment to helping Hackensack Meridian Health become the best source of care and a true innovator in the countless ways we work to keep communities healthy,’’ said Robert C. Garrett, co-CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health.

Among the many honors Mr. Simunovich has received is the 2017 New Jersey Hospital Association’s Hospital and Healthcare System Trustee of the Year.
Prior to the merger, Mr. Lloyd served as president and chief executive officer of Meridian Health, a New Jersey-based, integrated health system. Under his leadership, the network evolved into a nationally-recognized leader, with particular focus on clinical quality, nursing excellence, and innovative technology applications.
Committed to giving back, Mr. Lloyd has chaired the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) and held local, state and national board positions at organizations including the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals, American Hospital Association, American College of Healthcare Executives, Georgian Court University, QualCare, Commerce Bank and Lifetime Fitness.

A past recipient of the Medical Executive Award from the Academy of Medicine of New Jersey, Mr. Lloyd has been recognized by the NJHA as its Healthcare Professional of the Year; he has been included on Becker's Hospital Review list of 130 Nonprofit Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know; and NJBIZ has ranked him among the most powerful health care leaders.
