Siegel to be first African American to lead a hospital group
The Washington-based National Association of Public Hospitals plans to announce Monday (July 19) the appointment of a George Washington University health policy professor as its chief executive. The association said it will name Bruce Siegel to the position, making him the first African American to head a hospital group. Siegel, who starts in October, is expected to deal extensively with the health-care overhaul law. He will replace Christine Capito Burch, who held the executive director position and is retiring.
