Got What It Takes to Run a Safety Net Hospital?
Ordinarily I'd say that a list of job demands such as this is drawn up for public consumption. In this case, however, a case could be made to justify each of the skills and qualifications that Korn/Ferry has identified.
The fact is that this is a tough and demanding job. Whoever is eventually hired to lead Parkland will immediately find himself or herself pulled in any number of directions by people and issues and limited resources that in many cases will be beyond their control.
We often hear complaints about overpaid executives. If the person picked to lead Parkland can turn around the fortunes of this critically important health system, however, it will be a bargain.
