Synopsis: A great medical organization is first and foremost its talent base. Leadership at every level protects and advances the mission and becomes a magnet for recruitment and retention of the best staff. The Cleveland Clinic is a model of integration, quality and value for patients worldwide. That s the message that shines through every page of Leadership and Medicine. Author Floyd D. Loop, M.D., an accomplished physician leader, provides a compelling inside look at what it takes to run a major medical system. Along the way, he teaches readers some valuable lessons about the art and science of leadership.

As chief executive of the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Loop led a transformation from a financially troubled enterprise known mainly for its heart care into one of the world s most successful healthcare organizations. Under his 15-year tenure, the Clinic grew into a fully integrated medical delivery system, a renowned medical school and an industry blueprint for growth and innovation. Dr. Loop was able to build an integrated system to benefit the patient. He has successfully built was others are looking to create today.

This book will inspire and enlighten leaders who work for every type of healthcare organization at every level of the organization. Dr. Loop s personal philosophy serves as a prism through which he examines, with disarming honesty, the trials and triumphs of medical leadership. And he offers a wealth of practical advice to future generations the rising stars who must solve the problems plaguing our nation s healthcare system.

Leadership and Medicine is an excellent resource for physicians, administrators, academicians and students anyone and everyone with a vested interest in the future of healthcare in America.
