520    "In the 1980s, Wainerdi took charge of the Texas Medical 
       Center, embarking on a "second career" that ultimately 
       expanded the center from thirty-one institutions to fifty-
       three and increased its size threefold. Wainerdi pushed 
       for and ensured a culture of collaboration and 
       cooperation. In doing this, he developed a new nonprofit 
       administrative model that emphasized building consensus, 
       providing vital support services, and connecting member 
       institutions with resources that enabled them to focus on 
       their unique areas of expertise. At a time when Houston 
       was widely known as the "energy capital of the world," the
       city also became home to the largest medical complex in 
       the world. Wainerdi's success was to enable each member of
       the Texas Medical Center to be an integral part of 
       something bigger and something very special in the 
       development of modern medicine"--Supplied by publisher.
