Summary
"In the 1980s, Wainerdi took charge of the Texas Medical Center, embarking on a "second career" that ultimately expanded the center from thirty-one institutions to fifty-three and increased its size threefold. Wainerdi pushed for and ensured a culture of collaboration and cooperation. In doing this, he developed a new nonprofit administrative model that emphasized building consensus, providing vital support services, and connecting member institutions with resources that enabled them to focus on their unique areas of expertise. At a time when Houston was widely known as the "energy capital of the world," the city also became home to the largest medical complex in the world. Wainerdi's success was to enable each member of the Texas Medical Center to be an integral part of something bigger and something very special in the development of modern medicine"--supplied by publisher
