Doctors have their own lists, but we felt it was important to get two that were going above and beyond in ours.

Dr. Erol Veznedaroglu is the director of the Capital Institute for Neurosciences and the chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at Capital Health.

An insider has a simpler title: "He's the top neurosurgeon in the Northeast." But that's not why he makes the list.

"He's been a big proponent of regionalization of health care services for things such as stroke or cardiac care, where you would have hospitals concentrating on certain things so they can do it with high quality and an efficient manner." one insider said.

Dr. David J. Shulkin is the president of Morristown Medical Center and serves as chairman of the board of the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals.

More than that, another insider praised him as a forward-thinker in tough times: "He's moving hospitals toward accountable care," said the insider, who also hailed him as someone who puts patients' interests over profits.

"That's not an easy thing to do, and it's not politically correct — or necessarily financially correct. In the long run, that can hurt the hospital."
