CHAPEL HILL, NC — William L. Roper, MD, MPH, dean of the UNC School of Medicine and CEO of UNC Health Care, has been named to the annual list of “65 Physician Leaders of Hospitals and Health Systems” compiled by Becker’s Hospital Review.
Dr. Roper is one of three physician leaders in North Carolina who were included on the list, which represents “some of the brightest leadership in the health care industry,” according to a news release from Becker’s Hospital Review.
“Physician leaders make up an exceptional niche in health care. This unique role has only been emphasized with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which incites hospitals to reduce costs while improving the quality of care and patient experience. It takes talented, skilled and principled leadership to strike this balance. With clinical and financial backgrounds, the 65 executives included in this list continue to lead reputable institutions to the forefront of the industry,” the Becker’s news release said.
Physician leaders were selected for inclusion on this list based on nominations, inclusion in previous Becker's Hospital Review lists and research conducted by the Becker's editorial team.
