How I made it: Thomas M. Priselac of Cedars-Sinai Health System
The gig: Thomas M. Priselac is president and chief executive of Cedars-Sinai Health System, a sprawling complex in Los Angeles with 11,000 employees, vast research and teaching programs and the largest private, nonprofit medical center in the Western United States.
The red carpet: Cedars-Sinai has long been associated with Hollywood. George Burns Road and Gracie Allen Drive run through its middle right past the Steven Spielberg Pediatric Research Center. "We have the reputation as the hospital to the stars. That's something we're very proud of," says Priselac, 59. "People who can go anywhere in the world choose to come here, I believe, because they know they're going to get world-class care."
