Community Service Award

Since 1998, EvergreenHealth's Board of Commissioners has annually recognized local individuals or organizations who have had a profound impact on enhancing the community's health with its annual Community Service Award. Honorees have included dedicated volunteers, health care activists and physicians.


August "Auggie" Kempf (fifth from the left) is the recipient of the 2016 Community Service Award in recognition of the more than 20 years he has generously provided our EvergreenHealth with his vision and leadership.

Auggie served as a Community Advisor until his appointment to a vacant EvergreenHealth Board of Commissioners position in 2000. He continued to serve on the board for 16 years until his retirement last September, serving as a member of the Board Audit & Finance Committee and the Compensation & Retirement Plan subcommittee, and as a member of the EvergreenHealth Foundation Board of Trustees (acting as Chair of its Finance Committee).
