As president and CEO of TriHealth Inc., John Prout leads more than 10,000 employees, 80 ambulatory locations, 300 employed physicians and 1,700 independent medical staff to improve the health and well-being of Ohio’s citizens. The organization operates the largest corporate health and fitness program in Greater Cincinnati, the largest not-for-profit hospice in the region, and an active medical research program. Prout also holds the position of president and CEO of TriHealth’s three hospitals, Good Samaritan, Bethesda North and Bethesda Butler County. In 2016, Prout was recognized for his achievements with the prestigious Donald R. Newkirk Award by the Ohio Hospital Association.
In addition to my own business education that put me on the road to success, I have a deep personal connection to the University as the grandson of BGSU’s third president, Frank J. Prout. Just as my great-uncle guided the University during the tumultuous times of the Second World War, we need to support today’s leaders and students during a changing time in higher education.
