As is the case every year, the nominees for Seattle Business magazine’s 2018 Leaders in Health Care Awards constitute a hall of heroes.
We honor them for their compassion, their expertise and their sheer genius in recognizing that health care, while often reduced to the status of political football, remains one of the noblest career paths a person could choose.
We offer our hearty congratulations and a heartfelt thank you to this year’s honorees!
