Broward Health saw three of its executives recognized in Becker’s Healthcare Rising Stars: 90 Healthcare Leaders under 40. Gino Santorio, executive vice president, chief operating officer; Alan Goldsmith, executive vice president, chief financial officer; and Diana Arteaga, Esq., vice president, government relations and community affairs; were acknowledged as the next generation of healthcare leaders.
Individuals on the list are nominated based on their achievements within executive positions at hospitals, health systems and health IT companies across the country. They were recognized for their innovative approach to patient care and health system improvement.
"Gino, Alan, and Diana are proven leaders who are impacting the future of healthcare," said Broward Health President/CEO Beverly Capasso. "They are committed to making a difference in our community. We are proud to have these outstanding leaders as part of our Broward Health team."
Santorio is responsible for the daily operations of Broward Health – a 1,529-bed organization with 8,430 employees and 1,399 clinicians on the active medical staff – one of the largest public health systems in the country. He ensures proper operational controls are in place system-wide and sets comprehensive goals for the health system to maximize performance.
Goldsmith helped lead Broward Health’s annual incentive plan for managers to reinvest budget surpluses back into the system, and is also overseeing the financial phase of two major construction expansion projects: a $65 million expansion of Broward Health Coral Springs and a $52 million expansion and renovation of Broward's Salah Foundation Children's Hospital in Fort Lauderdale
Arteaga is an attorney specializing in governmental affairs, overseeing the legislative efforts for Broward Health. She previously served as the director of government relations for the City of Miami, the largest municipality of Miami-Dade County. The National League of Cities appointed her to the Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations Committee to advocate for its interests in Washington, D.C.
