Rahul Koranne approaches his work at the Minnesota Hospital Association with a mix of business acumen and sound medical knowledge. The MBA and M.D. took the reins of the organization in January, just a few months before the coronavirus pandemic tightened its grip on hospitals and clinics across the state. Since that time, he’s championed an approach to health care that ensures access to quality care in rural and urban settings alike. But the pandemic has also laid bare how “financially fragile” the state’s health delivery system is, Koranne notes. That’s why he’s using his position to work closely with elected officials and insurers to build a more financially sustainable system.
