Sentry Insurance in November elected former Rush University System for Health CEO Larry Goodman to the Sentry Board of Directors.
Goodman retired this year as CEO of the Rush System and Rush University Medical Center and president of Rush University, positions he’d held since 2002. Under Goodman’s guidance, Rush—one of Chicago’s largest hospital networks—became nationally recognized for excellence in patient care, breakthrough research, community engagement, and technological innovation.
“Larry led a tremendous period of growth and transformation at Rush,” said Pete McPartland, Sentry chairman of the board, president, and CEO. “His vision and seasoned leadership will serve our company and customers well.”
During the past decade, Goodman oversaw a $1 billion medical center campus transformation, and during his tenure as president of Rush University, enrollment doubled to more than 2,700 students as the university expanded its scope.
Rush’s improved financial performance under his leadership supported programs to improve care, advance research, assist the surrounding community, and develop Rush employees’ capabilities. Today, the medical center is ranked among the top U.S. university medical centers for quality of care.
With the addition of Goodman, the Sentry board currently consists of 10 members.
