History & Mission

NYC Health Business Leaders > History & Mission

Our History

In 2009, Bunny Ellerin and Dr. Yin Ho grew frustrated that New York City’s healthcare economy was often overlooked as a center of innovation and excellence, by outsiders and from within the city itself. They believed the city provides an ideal environment for the healthcare industry, offering expertise across all sectors plus access to capital.

So they launched NYC Health Business Leaders that year, and since then, the organization has evolved into one of the largest, most prestigious health-related networks today.

Our Mission

As NYC Health Business Leaders has evolved, our focus has grown beyond NYC, to healthcare in the New York region and nationally.

Today, we aim to bring together the best minds to discuss important issues and spur innovation. That means igniting the right conversations and connections with leading executives, entrepreneurs and physicians – true innovators with the desire and experience to have an impact. We believe that together, across sectors and levels, we are able to advance all sides of health.
