The profiles of all the winners are featured in the February 26, 2018 print issue of Modern Healthcare and at ModernHealthcare.com/Top25Minorities.
In its seventh year, the biennial recognition program honors the top minority healthcare executives who are influencing the policy and care delivery models across the country. In doing so, they are also highlighting the continued need to nurture diversity within their organizations.
“From leaders of health systems who are actively working to make sure that communities of color have access to affordable and high-quality healthcare to heroes who protected victims of natural disasters and violent protests, this year’s Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare exemplify resilience and tenacity,” said Modern Healthcare Editor Aurora Aguilar. “These leaders have produced incredible results by elevating the quality of patient care at their organizations while supporting and advancing their peers to boost diversity in the C-suite. As Modern Healthcare’s first Latina editor, I take special pride in this program and look forward to seeing the Top 25 and the 10 to Watch honorees grow in their roles and their influence.”
“It is an honor to be selected as one of 10 minority healthcare executives to watch by Modern Healthcare,” said Saurabh Tripathi, senior vice president & CFO of Fresenius Kidney Care, a division of Fresenius Medical Care North America. “I hope this demonstrates to others in healthcare that no matter what function or role you are in, you can truly have a transformative impact on the culture and diversity of a company.”
“For the positive impact he has made on our company, the dialysis industry as a whole and every patient we treat, I am thrilled that this honor has been awarded to Saurabh Tripathi,” said Bill Valle, CEO, Fresenius Medical Care North America. “Saurabh has helped us build upon our diverse and inclusive culture and is steadfastly focused on our mission to improve the lives of every patient, every day, while inspiring others to do the same.”
