Akram Boutros Hope in Action Endowed Professorship in Leadership

The Akram Boutros Hope in Action Endowed Professorship in Leadership

Dr. Akram Boutros retires as MetroHealth President and CEO at the end of 2022.

During his nearly-decade-long tenure, Dr. Boutros piloted a stunning turnaround in the system’s financial health; a remarkable increase in access and services; and a bold, ambitious expansion of MetroHealth’s role in improving the health of our community.

Along the way, long-held perceptions of MetroHealth crumbled. As the system has grown so, too, has its reputation. Because of Dr. Boutros’ leadership, MetroHealth now stands among the nation’s most admired public-hospital systems and most innovative and influential leaders in community health.

The Akram Boutros Hope in Action Endowed Professorship in Leadership will empower future MetroHealth Chief Executives to build upon his transformational leadership, vision and courage so that generations to come will benefit from this enduring legacy of hope in action.

The Akram Boutros Hope in Action Endowed Professorship in Leadership will:

  • Be a partnership between MetroHealth and CWRU’s Weatherhead School of Management.
  • Be held by the President/CEO of The MetroHealth System.
  • Fund strategic, transformative initiatives that help fulfill the system mission.
  • Provide resources to accelerate and enhance MetroHealth’s culture of disruption and innovation.
  • Support future leadership through the creation of a Hope in Action Scholar, who will work directly with (and be mentored by) the President/CEO.

Your donation will help ensure Dr. Boutros’ legacy of hope in action.
