How the hon­orees were cho­sen

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS -

To se­lect the hon­orees in Mod­ern Health­care’s fifth bi­en­nial list­ing of the Top 25 Mi­nor­ity Ex­ec­u­tives in Health­care, spon­sored by Furst Group, Mod­ern Health­care is­sued a call for nom­i­na­tions on Dec. 13, 2013. The nom­i­na­tion dead­line was Feb. 5, 2014. Read­ers sub­mit­ted nearly 170 nom­i­na­tions.

For this recog­ni­tion pro­gram, Mod­ern Health­care used the U.S. Cen­sus Bureau’s def­i­ni­tion of a mi­nor­ity. The agency con­sid­ers people with the fol­low­ing eth­nic back­grounds to be mi­nori­ties: African-Amer­i­can or black; Alaska Na­tive; Amer­i­can In­dian; Asian; His­panic or Latino; Na­tive Hawai­ian; other Pa­cific Is­lan­der; and mul­tira­cial.

An ed­i­to­rial re­view board con­sist­ing of the se­nior ed­i­tors at Mod­ern Health­care re­viewed the nom­i­na­tions and judged them on the fol­low­ing five cri­te­ria. Whether the can­di­date: suc­cess­fully served as a leader or man­aged an or­ga­ni­za­tion or com­pany; showed the abil­ity or power to ef­fect change in the health­care in­dus­try; demon­strated a will­ing­ness to share ex­per­tise with oth­ers in the field; served as a role model or men­tor to other mi­nor­ity health­care ex­ec­u­tives; as­sumed a lead­er­ship po­si­tion in the in­dus­try out­side of the can­di­date’s own or­ga­ni­za­tion or com­pany.

The fi­nal list ap­pears in this is­sue in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der. Per ed­i­to­rial pol­icy, award spon­sors are not in­volved in the nom­i­na­tion or sub­mis­sion process, nor in the judg­ing or de­ter­mi­na­tion of re­cip­i­ents. There is no limit on the num­ber of times a per­son can be nom­i­nated or be a re­cip­i­ent of this award.

This year’s re­cip­i­ents will be hon­ored at a gala on Wed­nes­day, July 16, at Chicago’s Knicker­bocker Ho­tel. The evening will in­clude a wel­come re­cep­tion, a for­mal din­ner and an awards pre­sen­ta­tion. For de­tails and to reg­is­ter, visit mod­ern­health­care.com / mi­nor­ity.
