World Class: A Story of Adversity, Transformation, and Success at NYU Langone Health

By William A Haseltine
A World Class Transformation

On August 16, 2018, NYU Langone Health captured the attention of the medical world with the surprise announcement that all current and new medical school students would receive full tuition scholarships. That bold move is yet another giant step in the transformation of NYU Langone Health from a faded and money losing medical institution to an innovative world class institution with a highly regarded hospital, medical school, and research program.

How did NYU Langone go from mediocrity to global leadership in less than a decade?

​In World Class, internationally renowned author, scientist, business leader, and philanthropist Dr. William A. Haseltine answers this question and many more. Based on first hand in-depth interviews with those that led the change, World Class provides a vivid account of the transformation of NYU Langone Health and its rise to preeminence. Haseltine gives his readers a step-by-step guide for anyone wishing to achieve similar excellence at their institution, whether that be at a medical facility, school, business, or nonprofit organization. World Class offers crucial lessons at a critical time, as both high and low income nations grapple with how do deliver effective healthcare at a manageable cost.


"This story gives management and leadership in any industry the template by which to ensure their businesses thrive, even in the most dire circumstances. Few organizational transformations tell a story as inspiring and instructive as the one that took place, over the past decade, at NYU Langone Health. It is a story of a leadership team of rare passion and vision, led by Dr. Bob Grossman, whose medical expertise and zest for innovation are second to none, and Ken Langone, whose love of people, renowned business acumen, and philanthropic enthusiasm are an unstoppable force of nature. Together, and supported by an ever more stellar team of medical and management professionals, they have changed one institution--and healthcare--forever for the better."
--Jack Welch, former Chairman and CEO, General Electric, and author of Jack: Straight from the Gut and Winning
