Modern Healthcare published a call for nominations to its 26th annual Up & Comers recognition program on May 21. Nominations were accepted through July 13. Readers submitted a record 265 entries, surpassing last year's then-record of 202. An editorial review board composed of the magazine's senior editors reviewed the nominations and selected the final 12 recipients. We extend our thanks to all of this year's nominees and appreciate their participation in the program. Look for an announcement of the 27th annual Up & Comers competition next spring.
