Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 28, 2012
Becker's Hospital Review is proud to announce the publication of its list, "100 Leaders of Great Hospitals," which recognizes the top executive at each of the hospitals in Becker's "100 Great Hospitals" list.
The 100 leaders of the great hospitals included in this list are presidents, CEOs and directors who have emphasized organizational excellence, patient safety, quality service, financial savvy and an appropriate management demeanor, all of which are even more vital as the healthcare industry goes through the transition of reform.
To compile this list, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team researched the executive leadership structure of each of the 100 Great Hospitals and included each hospital's top leader — all of whom hold titles of CEO, president, executive director or some other primary designation.
Note: This list is not an endorsement of included hospitals or associated healthcare providers. Individuals cannot pay to be included on this list. Recognized hospitals are free to note inclusion through marketing materials, website promotion, press releases and other media materials without paying a fee.
