12 Mar John S.T. Gallagher: Rx for Health Care
It’s not going to be easy for John S.T. Gallagher to retire. As the leader of what has become the North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System, he has taken a 169-bed teaching hospital formed to keep the local Gold Coast elite from heading into the city and made it the core of a mammoth, $3-billion health network that spans from Staten Island to Southampton. He has lasted through 13 board chairmen.
