The Health Care Hall of Fame award is one of healthcare industry’s most prestigious honors. A partnership between Modern Healthcare and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), the program was created to recognize the men and women who have made extraordinary strides, outstanding and lasting contributions to the healthcare industry.
Each year, two or three healthcare luminaries are inducted into the Modern Healthcare Hall of Fame. Since 1988, one hundred eleven (111) healthcare visionaries, original thinkers and leaders have been honored with this coveted distinction. A plaque to commemorate the honor is installed in the Health Care Hall of Fame, prominently displayed at Pennsylvania Hospital, the nation’s first hospital founded by Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Bond.
