Champions in Health Care

Champions in Health Care is the only program that takes a truly regional approach to health care issues. This year’s theme is: Managing Disruption. We are looking to gather leaders from nonprofit organizations, for-profits and pubic health care agencies to talk about how they manage disruption in the health care industry.

Each year, we profile experts in a specific area of health care, including hospital executives, physicians, nurses, researchers, philanthropists and volunteers. A luncheon and panel discussion with this year’s winners will be held on June 20 at the Topa Tower Club. We’re taking nominations for the following categories.


Technology – A new disruptive technology or medical device that is having a measurable impact on patient care.

Chief Executive – An executive who has been successful in managing the disruptive environment at a community hospital or health care agency.

Specialist – A M.D. or other specialist who has brought new technologies diagnosis or treatment in a specific area; or a specialist who has developed new systems for managing disruption taking place in health care.
