Edmond D. Hardin, Jr.

1966 - 2021

The Healthcare Industry lost a true giant when our friend, Ed Hardin, passed away February 10th, 2021. 

My heart breaks for Julie, Jordan, and Jonathan. For as much as Ed loved this profession, his family was his true passion. Thank you for sharing Ed with us these past several years. He impacted so many lives during that time.

I had the fortune of knowing Ed since 2009. He was a long-time, valued member of the IDN Summit Advisory Board and, more importantly, he was a friend. My only regret during that period is that I did not know him longer. Over the course of his career, one that spanned nearly 30 years, Ed was always working toward the improvement of whatever that was in front of him. His focus was always on the “long-term.” This was evidenced by his desire to help future generations as a professor at the local university. No matter where he was, Ed was always giving back. I can’t tell you how many phone calls and emails that started off by me saying, “Ed, I need to run something by you.” As busy as he was, never once did he say, “no.” He was always willing to help. It was that willingness that allowed Ed to have such a huge impact both on our industry and me personally. I was always learning from him.

There will be more updates as we go forward. Check back here and we will share information as we have it.

I will miss you, Ed. Until we meet again.
