Baltimore, Md. — The Daily Record has named University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) President and CEO Jeffrey A. Rivest among the recipients of the 2012 “Maryland’s Most Admired CEOs” awards. Rivest is recognized in the category for nonprofits with more than $10 million in annual revenue.

The Daily Record created the Most Admired CEOs award to recognize some of the most notably talented CEOs leading the state’s nonprofit, for profit and public companies. The winners were selected based on their demonstration of strong leadership, integrity, values, vision, commitment to excellence, financial performance and ongoing commitment to their communities and diversity.

Rivest joined UMMC in October 2004, and has led the organization to significant growth and national recognition including being named hospital of the decade by The Leapfrog Group in 2011. The University of Maryland Medical Center is a 779-bed teaching hospital in Baltimore and the flagship institution of the 11-hospital University of Maryland Medical System. The hospital serves as a national and regional referral center for trauma, cancer care, neurocare, cardiac care, women's and children's health and has one of the nation’s largest transplant programs.

“Our 2012 Most Admired CEOs are talented and determined individuals who have demonstrated a great deal of leadership and perseverance in their professional communities and are people to be commended for their accomplishments. Our recipients’ great success and commitment to excellence are truly an inspiration to business professionals statewide,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record.

The winners will be honored at an awards ceremony Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Baltimore. The winners also will be profiled in a special magazine, to be included in the September 14th edition of The Daily Record.
