Nominees sought for annual Up & Comers awards
As healthcare executives continue to face new challenges and encounter new opportunities, the next generation of leadership must evolve along with the changing industry, requiring new ideas and approaches in all sectors. Today’s young executives are already proving they are up to the task.
To help celebrate these rising young stars in healthcare leadership industrywide, nominations are being accepted for Modern Healthcare’s 29th annual Up & Comers recognition program. The program is sponsored by Witt/Kieffer, an Oak Brook, Ill.-based executive search firm.
Nominees must be no older than 40 as of the Aug. 7 submission deadline. Nominations will be judged based on several criteria: the scope of the nominee’s leadership roles and accomplishments; the financial and operating performance of the organization(s) under the nominee’s leadership; the individual’s community service; and leadership roles outside of the nominee’s organization.
Judging will be conducted by a panel of Modern Healthcare’s senior editors. Per editorial policy, sponsors are not involved in the judging or determination of award honorees.

This year’s class of Up & Comers will be profiled in the Oct. 12 issue of Modern Healthcare and online.
