Rowe, Molly

HealthLeaders Magazine;Nov2007, Vol. 10 Issue 11, p37
The article focuses on Paul Levy, president and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, who is also a blogger. In 2006, he launched his "Running a Hospital" blog because he thought people might be interested in what goes on in a hospital. The executive writes casually and connects to other blogs. According to the author, "Running a Hospital" is one of the few blogs written by hospital CEOs, but it is the upfront style of Levy that has more senior leaders thinking about how they communicate.
