Dr. Robert Accordino Named to Modern Healthcare’s Top 25 Emerging Leaders List

Music for Autism is proud to share that U.S. Founder and Chair of the Board of Directors, Dr. Robert Accordino, is among Modern Healthcare’s 2020 class of Top 25 Emerging Leaders. Modern Healthcare, the leader in healthcare business news, research and data, annually honors emerging leaders all age 40 or under, who have made significant contributions in the areas of innovation and financial, operational and clinical excellence early in their careers.

“In a year that’s proven to be a gamechanger for the industry, a group of leaders have risen to meet the moment. Some members of the 2020 class of Top 25 Emerging Leaders were freshly minted in their roles when COVID-19 hit. They rose to the occasion, whether it was developing outreach for underserved communities or standing up robust telehealth capabilities. And that’s on top of the growing accomplishments they were already registering in their regular jobs. These 25 honorees represent the most impressive leaders driving change across the industry,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare.

Music for Autism is already deeply familiar with Dr. Accordino’s inspiring and effective leadership and is thrilled for him that his contributions as Chief Mental Health Officer at Quartet Health are being recognized with this honor. At Quartet Health, Dr. Accordino helped propel their telehealth offerings from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, meeting a dire need few others were aware of yet. Dr. Accordino has also served as Chief of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at CareMore Health System and as healthcare advisor to the US Secretary of Defense in his role as White House Fellow.

“The members of this year’s and previous years’ Modern Healthcare Emerging Leaders have been colleagues whom I admire greatly. It’s a privilege to be named among them. I am so grateful for the extraordinary support and mentorship of our Music for Autism family,” said Robert on this distinction.

Congratulations again, Robert, from all of us at M4A! We cannot wait to see what you do next.
