Thank you for your thorough article on Lee Perlman, the American College of Healthcare Executives' Young Healthcare Executive of the Year (March 2, p. 56). Lee's work in the not-for-profit sector and his efforts in the community are inspiring to those of us who do what we do because of the good it will do for others.
But as someone who has known this fine man nearly since grade school, I would like to point out a factual error. Scott Hensley writes of Lee: "Although he never played hockey himself, Perlman is a die-hard New York Rangers fan." Yes, Lee's devotion to certain teams is long-standing. But what about my memories of Lee's street hockey career in his teens? As I recall, he was known to be an aggressive, nearly unstoppable stick-wielder on the pavements of Queens, N.Y. Sounds to me like he continues to put that attitude to good use on behalf of not-for-profit hospitals.
