Dr. Robert Kent, president of Unity Health Network, was recently recognized by the Summit County Medical Society with its Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Waleed Nemer, president of Summit County Medical Society, presented the award at an annual event in January. “Dr. Kent holds firm to his belief that physicians, and other clinicians, understand how to operate a healthcare delivery system better than non-clinical individuals. With this mindset, and previous success from earlier collaboration, he identified and placed key physicians in leadership roles of the organizations in which he leads, ultimately leading to its well-known achievements,” said Dr. Nemer. In addition to serving as the president of Unity Health Network, Dr. Kent, a practicing internal medicine physician, serves as the president and CEO of Western Reserve Hospital,. He is an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award-winner and has been named to the Becker’s Hospital Review “Top 100 Physician Leaders of Hospital and Health Systems,” which recognizes some of the most accomplished physician leaders across the U.S.
