Finding a greater purpose in helping people

Talk to members of the 2017 class of Up & Comers and one common trait will come through loud and clear: a deeply rooted desire to improve patients' lives. Whether it is launching a health plan aimed at easing consumer angst, using technology to help patients manage their medications, or pushing performance excellence across a service line, the 15 members of this year's class are focused on putting patients at the center of the delivery system.

Take Dr. Michael Rosenbloom, for example. After being drawn to patients suffering from memory loss during medical school, Rosenbloom finds himself at the forefront of advancing innovative treatments for Alzheimer's disease.

For Angela Lalas, working in healthcare was a matter of faith. And while the Seventh-day Adventist is on the financial side of the equation, she knows her “faithful fiscal stewardship” ultimately allows clinicians to do their jobs better.

Selecting a class of Up & Comers is never easy. Modern Healthcare received 105 nominations this year. The editors reviewed all of the profiles and narrowed the list down to 15. We think you'll find that this year's class represents a diverse mix of rising stars who are pushing the industry forward.
