Today is Wednesday, June 14, 2018. My name is Kim Garber, and I will be interviewing Wayne Lerner, whose career in health care leadership began at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in the 1970s and continued at Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and most recently at Holy Cross Hospital, also in Chicago. Dr. Lerner holds a master’s degree from the hospital administration program at the University of Michigan and a doctorate in public health, also from Michigan.
