We have been living in a second Gilded Age in America, in which the accumulation of personal wealth has taken precedence above all other values. One problem with that behaviorother than the resulting economic bubbleis that the he who dies with the most toys wins philosophy leaves society as a whole crippled. Work that might benefit the entire nation is relegated to the back burner, and the country declines materially and spiritually.
Health Care Hall of Fame - 2009
This prestigious award is in partnership between Modern Healthcare and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and was created to honor the men and women who have made outstanding contributions and extraordinary strides in the healthcare industry.
Each year, two or three healthcare luminaries are inducted into the Modern Healthcare Hall of Fame. Since 1988, ninety-five healthcare visionaries, original thinkers and leaders have been honored with the well-respected distinction and a recognition plaque installed in the Healthcare Hall of Fame, prominently displayed at Pennsylvania Hospital, the nation’s first hospital founded by Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Bond.
