Dr. Lynn Massingale Named to Tennessee Health Care Hall of Fame

Lynn Massingale, MD, TeamHealth co-founder and chairman, was named a 2018 Tennessee Health Care Hall of Fame inductee. This prestigious award recognizes men and women who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the healthcare industry.

Dr. Massingale is known as a major influencer in emergency medicine nationwide. He co-founded TeamHealth in 1979. He served as the company’s CEO for 30 years and now serves as chairman. Among his many accomplishments,
Dr. Massingale was named a Hero of Emergency Medicine by the American College of Emergency Physicians, received the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award and previously served as EMS Medical Director of Tennessee.

“I am incredibly humbled and honored to receive this distinguished award in my home state of Tennessee,” said Dr. Massingale. “While this award honors individuals for their contributions to healthcare, this recognition highlights TeamHealth’s exceptional physicians, advanced practice clinicians and healthcare professionals across the country who improve healthcare every day, in everything we do.”

Among the nearly 40 highly qualified nominees, inductees were chosen by a selection committee made up of healthcare leaders from across the state. The Health Care Hall of Fame was created in 2015 by Belmont University, the McWhorter Society and the Nashville Health Care Council, a founding partner. The seven honorees will be inducted at a ceremony in October. You can read more on the award and other inductees here.

Congratulations, Dr. Massingale!
