You know the CEOs of the large systems are going to grab top spots; which one goes first is the only surprise.
This year, it's Trunfio of Atlantic Health.
"He's just doing more, grabbing everything," said an insider. "With the acquisition of Chilton and Hackettstown (and Newton and an association in Hunterdon), he's going to have five to six points of care in northwestern New Jersey."
The group will give Trunfio a chance to change the face of how hospital groups are run, the insider said.
"(Northwestern New Jersey is) a socioeconomic community that not only can support spending money on infrastructure issues, it's going to demand it," the insider said.
