Maryland’s health care professionals once again are responding to a pandemic as well as the usual array of health care issues.
They recognize that there probably won’t be a clear and dramatic end point to the coronavirus. They are building systems and practices that take into account the likelihood this could be a permanent, or at least a long-lasting, part of our lives.
The men and women leading our health care institutions, as well as key policymakers and advocates, have risen again to this challenge. They are the 30 individuals you will meet in this special publication, The Daily Record’s Power 30 Health Care List.
This list was chosen by our editorial team. We reached out to readers and others for input and perspective. Many of the Power 30 are familiar from last year’s list, but you’ll find some new men and women who have made their mark in the industry in the last year.
In these pages we explore how leaders view the health care landscape, how it exists today and what it may look like in the future. And, just as importantly, we’ve tried to offer a glimpse into the kind of people they are, what drives them and how they are helping their colleagues manage through these trying times.
This list is part of a series of Daily Record Power Lists throughout 2022 that will showcase the most powerful figures in law, politics, higher education, banking and other fields. You can find this and all our Power Lists on our website, TheDailyRecord.com.
We hope you enjoy this publication, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
