Mod­ern Health­care and the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Health­care Ex­ec­u­tives last week cel­e­brated the 30th an­niver­sary of the Health Care Hall of Fame. Nearly 150 ex­ec­u­tives from across the in­dus­try at­tended a gala in Chicago in ad­vance of the ACHE Congress on Health­care Lead­er­ship. Two vi­sion­ar­ies— Ge­orge Cald­well and Sis­ter Mary Jean Ryan—were the 2018 Hall of Fame in­ductees. Cald­well was a pioneer in pa­tient-cen­tered care and in­te­grat­ing hos­pi­tal and physi­cian ser­vices. Ryan, the first CEO of SSM Health, was an ad­vo­cate for im­prov­ing qual­ity of care. Un­der her lead­er­ship, SSM be­came the first health­care or­ga­ni­za­tion to win the Mal­colm Baldrige Na­tional Qual­ity Award.
