How this year’s win­ner was cho­sen

Modern Healthcare - - PHYSICIAN AFFAIRS -

Mod­ern Physi­cian and sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion Mod­ern Health­care would like to con­grat­u­late Dr. Theri Griego Raby as the re­cip­i­ent of its fifth an­nual Physi­cian En­tre­pre­neur of the Year Award.

An ed­i­to­rial re­view board con­sist­ing of Mod­ern Physi­cian se­nior ed­i­tors chose Raby out of a pool of 30 nom­i­nees.

To be el­i­gi­ble, nom­i­nees had to meet three cri­te­ria: be an M.D. or a D.O.; own in whole or in part a cur­rent busi­ness serv­ing the health­care in­dus­try, or lead or man­age a cur­rent busi­ness serv­ing the health­care in­dus­try; and demon­strate the fi­nan­cial or mar­ket suc­cess of that busi­ness.

Mod­ern Physi­cian re­tained the ser­vices of ac­count­ing firm Grant Thorn­ton, which re­viewed the fi­nan­cial doc­u­ments sub­mit­ted by the nom­i­nees. Grant Thorn­ton’s re­view, which did not con­sti­tute a full au­dit, un­cov­ered no ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties. You can learn more about Grant Thorn­ton at grant­thor­ton.com/health­care. We thank the firm for its re­view and as­sis­tance. The ed­i­to­rial re­view board was solely re­spon­si­ble for mak­ing the fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tion of the award re­cip­i­ent.

Mod­ern Physi­cian an­nounced the 2012 pro­gram on April 2 and is­sued a call for nom­i­na­tions. Mod­ern Physi­cian and Mod­ern Health­care so­licited nom­i­na­tions through May 25. Mod­ern Physi­cian no­ti­fied Raby of her se­lec­tion on June 8. Non­re­cip­i­ents were no­ti­fied by Aug. 1.

Mod­ern Physi­cian will present Raby with the Physi­cian En­tre­pre­neur of the Year Award dur­ing a brief cer­e­mony held Sept. 20 in con­junc­tion with the an­nual meet­ing of the Physi­cian Hos­pi­tals of Amer­ica in Austin, Texas.
