This year marked Modern Healthcare's 16th annual Up & Comers program that recognizes rising stars in the healthcare industry. We issued a call for nominations from the field in our May 6 issue and ran a series of five advertisements soliciting nominations through July 1. The nomination deadline was July 8. Some 120 nominations were received. Modern Healthcare's editorial staff selected the 13 recipients who are profiled on the following pages. As always, the selection process was difficult with dozens of highly qualified individuals to choose from. Although only 13 were chosen, we believe the future of the healthcare delivery system is in good hands if this year's nominees are any indication of the talent level in the field. We thank all who participated. Please look for an announcement of the 2003 Up & Comers recognition program next spring.
