Well-de­served honor

Modern Healthcare - - Opinions Letters -

Percy Allen II (se­lected for in­duc­tion into Mod­ern Health­care’s Health Care Hall of Fame, Feb. 7, p. 16) is one of the most awe­some CEO/hu­man­i­tar­i­ans I have ever had the priv­i­lege to meet. Al­ways so bril­liant and will­ing to share his knowl­edge with oth­ers. A great men­tor and friend.

Dur­ing the time that I served as a hos­pi­tal ad­min­is­tra­tor at SUNY Down­state Med­i­cal Cen­ter in New York, I wit­nessed Allen go be­yond the call of duty for the suc­cess of our in­sti­tu­tion and com­mu­nity. He had a gift of en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to do the same—leav­ing the en­vi­ron­ment a lit­tle bet­ter than he found it.

It is so very nice to see a gen­uine and awe­some soul hon­ored. Vickie Hill New York
