We hear so much defeatism coming out of the healthcare debate today
Marblehead, MA and Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 4, 2009
HealthLeaders Media, the leading provider of healthcare business information to the c-suite, has announced the Top Leadership Teams in Healthcare 2009 winners.
The program, now in its sixth year, is designed to celebrate the outstanding teamwork that occurs in healthcare organizations each day, to share what makes top leadership teams successful, and to encourage other healthcare leaders to learn more from the best practices of top leadership teams.
The 2009 winners include Denver Health, in Denver, CO, for Large Hospitals and Health Systems; Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen, WA, for Community and Mid-Size Hospitals; Cary Medical Center in Caribou, ME, for Small Hospitals; NorthShore University HealthSystem Medical Group in Evanston, IL, for Medical Groups and Independent Health in Williamsville, NY, for Health Plans.
HealthLeaders Media Editor-in-Chief Jim Molpus says the 2009 Top Leadership Teams winners share a common thread in that systemic barriers to healthcare performance have not stopped them. "We hear so much defeatism coming out of the healthcare debate today," Molpus says. "Then you look at the challenges facing a public, safety-net hospital system like Denver Health. Others in very similar situations have closed, but Denver Health has set the bar higher than merely surviving. It has found a way to grow and to carry out the highest purposes of its mission to serve the citizens of Denver."
Recipients of the award will be honored at the HealthLeaders Media 09: The Hospital of the Future Now event October 15-16 at the Palmer House in Chicago.
Winners are judged on the team's overall leadership culture, its ability to overcome challenges, and its ability to demonstrate successes that result from outstanding leadership teamwork. Only one winner per category receives this national honor each year. Categories include:
- Large Hospitals and Health Systems (500 or more licensed beds)
- Community and Mid-Sized Hospitals (100 to 499 licensed beds)
- Small Hospitals (fewer than 100 licensed beds)
- Health Plans (state, regional and national health plans)
- Medical Group Practices (physician-owned, single- or multi-specialty groups employing 25 or more physicians)
Top Leadership Teams in Healthcare 2009 is supported by Cejka Search, GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare and Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis.
