The best healthcare delivery requires leadership from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Becker’s Hospital Review named George Lewis, ’82 , president of Kettering Physician Network in Dayton, Ohio, as one of the 50 African Americans who have taken on leadership roles across the country at hospitals and health systems as well as in national organizations.
Lewis is described as someone with influence on how his organization approaches healthcare delivery, develops healthcare policy and advocates for the next generation of leaders. Becker’s Hospital Review accepted recommendations and conducted internal research to develop this list.
