The Miami Herald interviewed Dr. Nabil El Sanadi, EMBA '87, who was recently named president/CEO of the North Broward Hospital District.
From the article...
El Sanadi has always enjoyed emergency medicine, but he wanted to be an administrator also.
“I always knew medicine was the art of healing and the science of healing, but it’s also a business and that’s why I got my MBA,” he said. “When you practice medicine, you take care of one patient at a time, but as an administrator you get to set policy and affect a much larger population simultaneously.”
El Sanadi now has a chance to do both. He was appointed in December to succeed Frank Nask, who was retiring, as president/CEO of Broward Health, which provides hospital and healthcare services for the northern two-thirds of Broward County. And he plans to still work one or two emergency room shifts a month “to make sure I keep up my skill sets and experience the impact of my administrative decisions as a provider on the front lines.”
