HCA co-founder Dr. Thomas Frist Jr. says Jack Bovender had the quality of character he needed to right the company when it was shaken in the late 1990s. Bovender says leading an organization that takes care of people in need is a "beautiful thing to have been associated with all my life." Modern Healthcare interviewed the former HCA executives, as well as current CEO Milton Johnson and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jonathan Perlin, before Bovender was inducted into the Health Care Hall of Fame on March 15.
