Why the CEO of Presbyterian/St. Luke's keeps a tiny diaper on her desk

On the CEO of Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center's desk sits a clean diaper smaller than a business card to remind her of some of the hospital's most vulnerable patients, according to the Denver Business Journal

Maureen Tarrant, CEO of Presbyterian/St. Luke's and the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver, told the publication the diaper reminds her of the babies who spend time in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit. The medical center houses the region's largest NICU, with 84 beds, and admits babies from 12 states.

"We do some of the most complex work that occurs in hospitals here," Ms. Tarrant told the Denver Business Journal.

Ms. Tarrant has overseen operations at Presbyterian/St. Luke's and its children's hospital since 2014. Prior to that, she served as CEO of Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree, Colo., from 2003-14. The Denver Business Journal profiled Ms. Tarrant as part of its Executive Voice series. Read the full report here.
