Health Care Hall of Fame Past Inductees
Inducted in 2019
The healthcare industry continues to experience transformation at a feverish pace, with ongoing consolidation, a realignment of operations away from hospitals, and surging demand for more consumer choice.
But for longtime health system executive John King, a much earlier round of industry change is what launched his career in the 1960s. Back then, “system” was still an emerging concept in the industry, and the same could be said for the profession of healthcare administrator.
King, 80, whose professional path took him to faith-based systems in Minneapolis, South Bend, Ind., Chicago and Portland, Ore., in an arc spanning nearly 40 years, has been inducted into the Health Care Hall of Fame for his lifetime achievements not only in building healthcare organizations but in community service during and after his career.
