MetroHealth President and CEO Akram Boutros honored
(Plain Press, July 2021) MetroHealth President and CEO Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE, has been named one of America’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives by Modern Healthcare.
The honor, from one of the industry’s largest and most respected news outlets, recognizes the top clinicians in health care as selected by their peers and the magazine’s senior editors for extraordinary leadership qualities, innovation, service to patients and community, and achievements inside and outside of their organizations.
Modern Healthcare recognized Dr. Boutros for navigating the system through the pandemic both operationally and financially while also opening new access points for patient care, addressing social determinants of health through the system’s Institute for H.O.P.E.™, breaking ground on a new affordable-housing project and continuing the on-time-and-on-budget construction of The MetroHealth Glick Center, the system’s new main campus 11-floor hospital scheduled to open in autumn of 2022.
“I’m honored to represent 7,800 colleagues at MetroHealth who have been instrumental in achieving this recognition,” Dr. Boutros said. “We are driven by the relentless pursuit of healthy thriving communities for everyone.”
