HealthInvestor Power Fifty
Date: 27 November 2014
Venue: The Bloomsbury Big Top
The healthcare industry's most influential leaders
HC-One and Court Cavendish boss Chai Patel has been named the independent health sector’s most influential leader at the HealthInvestor Power Fifty 2014 countdown.
Patel pipped Spire Healthcare chief executive Rob Roger to the number one spot in a top five that also included HCA International’s Mike Neeb, Four Seasons Health Care chairman Ian Smith and Priory Group’s Tom Riall.
Comedian Mark Dolan counted down the top 15 leaders in the UK’s independent health and social care sector, as voted for by HealthInvestor readers, at the Bloomsbury Big Top on 27 November.
Patel was awarded the top spot due to his role in the landmark sale of HC-One’s parent group NHP to Formation Capital, Safanad, HCP and his own company Court Cavendish.
Keith Crockett from Health Care REIT also picked up an award for the most influential investor and Spire Healthcare’s IPO was recognised as the deal of the year.
The evening also saw the presentation of the Zolfo Cooper Growth Company Award, which was won this year by Nurse Plus. The prize acknowledges the top 25 private healthcare companies that have reported the strongest financial growth over the last three years.
