"It's an exciting moment in time for healthcare innovation with New York taking the lead and supporting the rapid acceleration of discovery and breakthroughs that will benefit millions of New Yorkers and communities beyond."
"For decades New York has been one of the most influential leaders in healthcare delivery and innovation. It is only fitting that our New York leaders who have been able to bring all the pieces together on health, care and cost be honored for putting New York in the leadership position once again," said Mark Wagar, President of Heritage Medical Systems.
