Maltese physician Gianrico Farrugia came in for some praise from Minnesota’s largest newspaper, which described him as leading “a venerable institution through an industry’s crossroads”.

In an article published on 20 July, the Star Tribune says that Farrugia took over the running of the state of Minnesota’s largest employer “at an unpredictable moment in health care. New players including Amazon are vowing to upend the system. Prominent presidential candidates are debating fundamental reform, including a push for Medicare for All. Employers continue to demand more cost-effective health care.
