President & CEO Roberta Luskin-Hawk, M.D., Named in Top "Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know"
Presence Saint Joseph Hospital-Chicago and Presence Saint Francis Hospital President & CEO Roberta Luskin-Hawk, M.D., was recognized by Becker's Hospital Review in its 2013 list of "300 Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know" for her outstanding commitment to improving healthcare in America. In November 2010, she was recognized by Becker's as one of 50 women who demonstrate outstanding leadership in the hospital and healthcare industry. She was named a "Top Doctor" in Chicago by Castle Connolly in 2001, 2003 and 2009.
Prior to her executive role, Dr. Luskin-Hawk had a 24-year career that incorporated clinical practice, medical education, clinical research and physician leadership positions. As a practicing physician, Dr. Luskin-Hawk has played a significant role in bringing AIDS research and treatment to the community. She co-founded one of the first HIV inpatient units serving the Chicago metropolitan area at Presence Saint Joseph Hospital in 1987, and as an AIDS/HIV advocate, she later founded a not-for-profit clinical research consortium in Chicago focused on improving access to people previously under-represented in clinical trials, such as women and African Americans. From 1989-2009, she secured more than $20 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for these clinical research programs to provide the underrepresented populations with access to life-saving HIV drugs.
Today, as President & CEO of Presence Saint Joseph Hospital-Chicago and Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, Dr. Luskin-Hawk leads system initiatives to improve patient satisfaction and uphold clinical excellence.
