I was in a pretty intense meeting some peers and the CEO of a very large hospital. We were discussing leadership amongst other things.

He goes around the room, asks us what department/area of expertise we are in or have and I say Human Resources.

He looks me dead in the eye and says "No one becomes CEO by being in HR, no one. It's all about the business."

Truer words were never spoken...

That is not always the case and shame on your hospital's CEO who has a very narrow perspective on life and the workplace. Anything is possible. I know of several former HR leaders in hospitals that now successfully servce as the CEO.
