USF Health leader shakes up medical status quo

Tampa Bay Times, October 1, 2012

If you think it's surprising that the University of South Florida plans to build an ambitious health system—starting with a hospital far beyond Tampa—you haven't met Dr. Stephen Klasko. In eight years as USF medical school dean, Klasko has moved at a dizzying pace, compensating for his institution's lack of a hospital by launching partnerships as far afield as Allentown, Pa. Along the way, he has crossed lines that others won't, ruffling feathers in the tradition-bound medical world. Supporters call Klasko the visionary that USF's medical school—which still yearns for national recognition at 41 years old—needs at a time of seismic change in the healthcare industry.
