Many radiologists work in hospital-based practices, and many hospitals rely on radiology for revenue to sustain their other health care programs and keep patients' and referring physicians' satisfaction high. It is vital that radiology department chairs and hospital CEOs work well together. Yet they often come from very different backgrounds and operate with very different sets of assumptions and objectives. The authors review these differences and suggest strategies radiologists and radiology leaders can adopt to improve their relationships with hospital administrators.
