Need To Know: Steve Love

Steve Love runs the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council, a group that works to unite 75 member-hospitals that collectively generate 240,000 jobs in the area.

"In most areas of the country, such councils don’t exist. This keeps hospitals ultra-competitive and makes it difficult for them to tackle common problems," Love says. "Each battles for its own interests, regardless of how it affects the community. Here, there’s more cooperation. I am honored to be the president and CEO,” he says. “I have learned a great deal. In the North Texas area, we are blessed.”
