Kindred's Chief Executive Officer Paul J. Diaz was named one of the Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine for the fourth time. An editorial review board consisting of the senior editors at Modern Healthcare reviewed the nominations for the biennial list and judged them on the following five criteria. Whether the candidate: successfully served as a leader or managed an organization or company; showed the ability or power to effect change in the healthcare industry; demonstrated a willingness to share expertise with others in the field; served as a role model or mentor to other minority healthcare executives; assumed a leadership position in the industry outside of the candidate's own organization or company. An article in the magazine states, "It's a chance to congratulate—and learn from—the leaders and organizations who are getting it right. These executives are role models in their companies, communities and in the industry as a whole."
