St. Luke’s University Health Network President and CEO Richard A. Anderson received The Boy Scouts of America Minsi Trails Council’s 2017 Good Scout Award, and a Lower Saucon Township Eagle Scout was on hand to help present it to him.

The prestigious award was given at the yearly South Mountain District Good Scout Breakfast Wednesday morning at the Event Center at Blue in Bethlehem, where Saucon Valley student Benjamin Szydlow was the Eagle Scout representative speaker.

Anderson was recognized by area Scouts as well as business and community leaders for his achievements and service to the community.

“Richard Anderson exemplifies all the good that comes out of our community–the character, leadership and positive impact,” Arby Beisel, South Mountain Senior District Executive, said. “We are grateful that under Richard Anderson, St. Luke’s has been a tremendous partner, faithfully providing facilities, education and donations to Scouts.”

Anderson has led St. Luke’s University Health Network since 1985, and has overseen St. Luke’s evolution into one of the largest health networks in Pennsylvania and Western New Jersey.
