HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce awarded Rod Davis, senior vice president of Nevada operations for Dignity Health Nevada of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals, with its Spirit of Henderson Award during its fourth quarter luncheon.

Recipients of the Spirit of Henderson Award are selected by the Henderson Chamber executive board. Past honorees include Bobby Ellis, president and chief executive officer of SNAP Towing, and Larry Seedig, former president of USAA Bank, both awarded in 2013.

“Davis was honored with the award because of his contribution to building a long-standing partnership between the Henderson Chamber of Commerce and St. Rose Dominican Hospitals,” said Scott Muelrath, president/CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. “Rod has played an important role in the economic growth of Henderson with his deep commitment to the business community as well as greatly contributing to the health of its citizens. In the good times as well as in the tough times, Rod has always supported the Henderson Chamber and its members.”

Davis is a past president of the Henderson Chamber board of directors (2000) during which he was instrumental in forming Leadership Henderson.
