Fontenot named one of the 40 Most Powerful People in Healthcare




Alongside the likes of President Barack Obama, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, the leaders of the Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson, Woman's Hospital President and CEO Teri Fontenot has been named one of the 40 Most Powerful People in Healthcare by Becker's Hospital Review. The annual list recognizes leaders who have been instrumental in shaping health-care policy, trends and debate over the past year. Fontenot will also serve as a keynote panelist on the topic "Great Leadership" at Becker's annual meeting in Chicago on May 18. "Fontenot has led the hospital in the development of a $400 million replacement campus, which will open in summer 2012 with increased capacity for current services and new growth opportunities," Becker's says. "In addition to her work as head of Woman's Hospital, Fontenot will serve as chairman of the American Hospital Association starting in 2012, becoming the top elected official of the organization that represents America's hospitals and health systems." The new Woman's campus on Airline Highway is slated to open June 3. For nearly 16 years, Fontenot has managed the 356-bed Woman's Hospital, which is the largest freestanding nonprofit woman's hospital in the country, as well as the largest birthing and neonatal intensive care facility in Louisiana.
