One of the nation's leading minority healthcare executives took over a financially troubled Catholic Healthcare West in 2000. Within four years, he returned the system to profitability and hasn't looked back since. Today he runs the rebranded Dignity Health, a financially robust $12.6 billion system—it grew over 10% last year—with 36 hospitals and 300 sites in more than 20 states. At an age when most people consider retiring, he's added a number of high-profile corporate boards to his workload, including fast-food giant McDonald's Corp., Wells Fargo & Co. and Navigant Consulting.
