Each year, 10 rising, high-potential team members across the AdventHealth Hendersonville care system, are nominated to take part in this program, participating in a variety of leadership assessments, training and experiences. Todd Gothberg, AdventHealth Hendersonville Director of Organizational Development, facilitates the year-long program. “I love that AdventHealth is committed to building great leaders. I am blessed to be a part of the process,” says Gothberg.
