“Dr. Hess’ stellar career as the founding member, co-owner and president/chief medical officer of OVP Health displays his talents and leadership,” said Linda S. Holmes, director of development & alumni affairs at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “Along with his loyalty and support of the School of Medicine over the years, his medical and business acumen make him the perfect recipient of this year’s distinguished alumnus award. He is truly a Son of Marshall.”
