Dr. Akram Boutros
President and CEO,
Boutros helped the safety-net provider navigate the pandemic both operationally and financially. That includes staying on track to open new access points in 2020, being on budget for large construction projects on the main campus and breaking ground on an affordable-housing complex. Under his leadership, MetroHealth in 2019 created the Institute for HOPE (health, opportunity, partnership and empowerment) to partner with neighborhood groups in addressing social determinants of health. On the financial front, MetroHealth saw its commitment to value-based care spike in 2020, with 100% of Medicaid patients, 95% of Medicare patients and 65% of commercially insured patients covered by a value-based arrangement.
