Tenet Healthcare Corp.
Baggett, 42, first joined Dallas-based Tenet in October 2009 as chief medical officer, after serving as vice president of clinical strategy and chief operating officer for HCA's clinical services group. During an earlier fellowship as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Baggett's work focused on improving safety, quality and service. At Tenet, he helped establish the company's Clinical Innovation Awards, which recognize system hospitals for their commitment to those three pillars of care. It's Baggett's second consecutive time on the biennial Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare roster.
