Doctors and nurses aren’t the only ones keeping our hospitals running, and the people in the business of saving lives aren’t always the ones wearing stethoscopes. The following POWER PLAYERS are responsible for making healthcare delivery run smoothly, so that doctors can do their jobs and you can get the care you need. Administrators make sure hospitals operate efficiently and provide appropriate medical care to patients. While doctors strive to keep the blood flowing and the heart beating, the hospital administrator is doing his or her job keeping the hospital alive and healthy. These individuals also have their fingers on the pulse of change and growth in the healthcare industry and the need to expand, raise money for such expansions, and purchase the most state-of-the-art equipment for every area of the hospital.
