GARY S. HORAN NAMED TO "POWER 50" LISTING
Trinitas President and CEO makes list for fourth time
Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President and CEO of Trinitas Regional Medical Center, was recently named to the prestigious Power 50 Healthcare list published each year by NJBIZ. This marks the fourth year that he has attained this list, during which he improved his standing by moving up 4 notches to #27. According to NJBIZ, the Power 50 Healthcare list identifies the "top players" in New Jersey who are "impacting this powerful part of our economy."
He expresses gratitude for this Power 50 recognition: "It's a humbling experience to be on the same list that includes many men and women whom I greatly admire," says Mr. Horan. "Healthcare today is more volatile than it has been in my entire 45 year career. There are many, many moving parts, and today's leaders are literally reinventing healthcare as we know it. I am excited to be a part of that dynamic process."
An accomplished healthcare executive, Mr. Horan has led Trinitas for 15 years, arriving shortly after the merger of St. Elizabeth Hospital and Elizabeth General Medical Center which gave birth to Trinitas in January, 2000. Trinitas offers 10 Centers of Excellence in such areas as cancer care, cardiac care, renal, diabetes and wound care, sleep medicine, behavioral health care, specialized care for women and seniors, and a professional school of nursing. Based in Elizabeth, Trinitas' 2,800 employees and 500 physicians are part of a health system that reaches into every corner of New Jersey. It is a Catholic teaching institution sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth in partnership with the Elizabethtown Healthcare Foundation.
The recent NJBIZ recognition is the latest in Mr. Horan's long string of achievements that includes being the 2016 recipient of the New Jersey Hospital Association's Distinguished Service Award. He is past Chairman and current Board member of the Hospital Alliance of New Jersey; past Chairman and current member of the Board of Governors of the Greater New York Hospital Association, past Chairman of the Hospital Association of New York State, and past member of the Board of the New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce. He currently serves on the Board of the Catholic Healthcare Partnership of New Jersey as well as on the Board of the New Jersey Hospital Association. He received the 2015 Regent Lifetime Award of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). In addition, he is a member of the Union County College Board of Governors.
Mr. Horan's inspiration is simple: "When you do something you love, you never just 'go to work.' You go to your passion. Health care management has been my passion for 45 years."
He earned his B.S. degree in Economics from St. Peter's University, Jersey City, and his M.A. degree in Health Care Administration from the George Washington University, School of Government and Business, in Washington, DC.
Mr. Horan and his wife, Arlene, reside in Sea Girt. They are the parents of three grown children.
