Advocate Health Care is proud to announce that Terika Richardson, president of both Advocate Trinity Hospital in Chicago and Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest, was recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of 2018’s Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare.

“This is a well-deserved honor,” says Advocate Health Care President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Skogsbergh. “In addition to her strong leadership and business acumen, I continue to be inspired by Terika’s commitment to addressing health disparities on Chicago’s Southeast Side and South Suburban communities.”
