A healthcare organization's need to reach certain benchmarks for quality, safety and efficiency have brought the role of the chief operating office to center stage. That executive is tasked with advancing the organization's mission, helping maintain fiscal health and coordinating the network of providers that are responsible for patients' well-being. Those massive responsibilities led Modern Healthcare this year to launch its first annual list of the Top 25 COOs in healthcare. Honorees show exemplary leadership and results and were nominated by their peers. Those submissions were then vetted by our editorial leadership team.
Congratulations to those who made the list!
