President of Sisters Hospital Recognized by Modern Healthcare
Aaron Chang, MHA, FACHE, President of Sisters of Charity Hospital, has been named to Modern Healthcare’s list of Top 25 Emerging Leaders. The healthcare business publication annually honors emerging leaders, all age 40 or under, who have made significant contributions in the areas of innovation and financial, operational and clinical excellence early in their careers.
“In a year that’s proven to be a game changer for the industry, a group of leaders have risen to meet the moment. Some members of the 2020 class of Top 25 Emerging Leaders were freshly minted in their roles when COVID-19 hit. They rose to the occasion, whether it was developing outreach for underserved communities or standing up robust telehealth capabilities,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare. “And that’s on top of the growing accomplishments they were already registering in their regular jobs. These 25 honorees represent the most impressive leaders driving change across the industry.”

Bringing His Leadership Experience to Sisters Hospital
This past September, Catholic Health announced Chang as the new President of Sisters of Charity Hospital. He assumed the role on October 5, overseeing both the hospital’s Main Street and St. Joseph campuses.
“I am honored to be among a group of healthcare professionals that have shown outstanding leadership and made such meaningful impacts to their respective communities,” said Chang. “This recognition is a testament to the teamwork required to achieve much of the work that took place, so I share this with the St. John’s leaders, physicians, and staff. I take those valuable experiences with me into my new role as President of Sisters of Charity Hospital and look forward to continue the facility’s rich tradition and reputation of excellence.”
Creating a Culture of Excellence
“We congratulate Aaron on this national recognition,” said Marty Boryszak, Senior Vice President of Acute Care. “This speaks not only to his ability as a performance and results driven leader, but as someone who focuses on what matters most, creating a culture of excellence for our patients and associates.”
