For people who are inclined to think that all change is bad and believe nothing can be done to improve the world, we give you the 2011 inductees into Modern Healthcare's Health Care Hall of Fame.
Health Care Hall of Fame - 2011
Percy Allen II, a 2011 inductee into the Modern Healthcare Health Care Hall of Fame, talks with Modern Healthcare Editor David Burda about his greatest healthcare accomplishment and his advice for rising healthcare leaders.
From Sinai Hospital in Detroit to University Hospital of Brooklyn to Bon Secours Baltimore Health System, Percy Allen II took over a string of financially troubled healthcare organizations that at least some thought wouldn't make it.
Sister Mary Roch Rocklage, one of the 2011 inductees into Modern Healthcare's Health Care Hall of Fame, talks with Modern Healthcare Editor David Burda about her greatest healthcare accomplishment and her advice for rising healthcare leaders.
When Henry J. Kaiser built highways, dams, bridges and ships as leader of Kaiser Industries during the first half of the 20th century, prepaid group medical care was not a widely accepted practice. But his partnership with Dr. Sidney Garfield, a 1988 Hall of Fame inductee, led to the creation of what is now Kaiser Permanente and the rise of group practice and the health insurance industry as we know them today.
As fewer young Catholic women chose to enter the sisterhood in the decades after World War II, it became gradually inevitable that nuns would no longer be exclusively running Catholic healthcare facilities. Sister Mary Roch Rocklage is among those who led Catholic healthcare across that bridge, while simultaneously leading a disparate group of hospitals across 28 cities into the integrated Sisters of Mercy Health System.
