The leadership academy founded by three health care organizations in the state kicked off its first gathering of “participants” selected to participate last week.
When the New Jersey Healthcare Executive Leadership Academy, in partnership with Seton Hall University, formed at the end of last year, each participating organization was tasked with nominating 10 candidates to attend the academy.
NJBIZ obtained the list of nominees, who were selected by the Medical Society of New Jersey, New Jersey Association of Health Plans and the New Jersey Hospital Association.
They were originally identified as executives in various organizations who were “next in line” to either lead or hold important roles.
Some CEOs have made the list, as well as members of the organizations themselves. In addition, the total participants is less than the originally anticipated 30.
