Before turning 30, Winjie Tang Miao was named a hospital president and in 2011, she was tapped to lead the development of the newest hospital in the Texas Health Resources system. Miao’s rise to the top follows her success in previous health care administration leadership roles. Miao oversaw the development of more than $500 million in construction projects and the growth and development of a nationally-recognized breast health program. She is recognized as a “true visionary” with “a strong ability to grow inpatient and outpatient volumes, expand services in the community and advance quality in many areas of the hospital.” Miao is also active in her community and has won several awards, including recognition by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of “25 Healthcare Leaders Under Age 40” in 2011 and one of Modern Healthcare’s “Up and Comers” in 2008. She says some of her most fulfilling work was when she served as a clinic director opening a new medical clinic in an underserved village in Africa. Miao received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and her Master of Healthcare Administration degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
