Steven E. Burghart, MHA, Senior VP and Chief Administrative Officer of Holtz Children's Hospital and Jackson Women's Hospital, was recently named to the 2013 Becker's Hospital Review "Rising Stars: 25 Healthcare Leaders Under 40" list. This is the third consecutive year Mr. Burghart was named to this prestigious list.
