#29 Gary Horan Trinitas Medical Center, CEO
The CEO is making Trinitas Medical Center in Elizabeth an example of how a single-entity urban hospital can survive and thrive. Last month, the hospital dedicated a $5.2 million ambulatory surgery center, and the Trinitas School of Nursing recently was recognized as one of the highest-rated schools in the nation. Horan was named the first non-New York chairman of the Greater New York Hospital Association. "Gary's one of my favorite people in the business," said one insider. "He's done an unbelievable job of shepherding an urban hospital, proving it can be done."
