FAH Member Officials Named to Modern Healthcare’s Top 25 Emerging Leaders

Modern Healthcare’s recently released list of the Top 25 Emerging Leaders includes two officials from FAH member companies – Daniel Deslatte of Ardent Health Services and Brian Elisco of Tenet Healthcare.

The Top 25 Emerging Leaders program, which was previously entitled Up & Comers, is an annual list honoring young leaders in the health care management field. The list represents rising stars under 40 who have made significant contributions in administration, management or policy.

Daniel Deslatte is the Senior Vice President of Business Affairs and External Relations for the University of Texas Health Science Center in Tyler, Texas. Deslatte helped lead the joint venture acquisition with FAH member Ardent Health Services to take control of East Texas Medical Center.

Brian Elisco serves as the Texas Group Chief Financial Officer for Tenet Healthcare Corp. Elisco oversees finances for Tenet’s largest group, which generates $2 billion of net revenue annually. He also helps with an initiative that provides improved access to care for psychiatric patients and helps relocate emergency observation beds to community settings.

FAH congratulates Daniel Deslatte and Brian Elisco for their outstanding service in the field – we are confident they will continue to be leaders for years to come. For more information about Daniel and Brian, and to learn more about all of the 25 Emerging Leader honorees, click here.
