Horvath earned a bachelor’s degree with a minor in business administration from Columbia College in South Carolina and a master’s degree in health administration from Tulane University in New Orleans. She is certified as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and serves on the board of its Alaska Chapter.

Before joining Providence, Horvath served as director of the medical staff office at Touro Infirmary in New Orleans and in various roles for the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and LSU Healthcare Network. Horvath has been with Providence Alaska since 2019 as manager of provider relations, contracts, and network development prior to becoming executive director of Alaska Health Alliance.

Carrie Peluso, chief nursing officer of Providence Alaska, says, “I’m excited about the breadth of experience Meg brings to the role to help our children’s hospital continue to grow while continuing to provide the best care possible to the women and children of Alaska.”

Welcome to the June 2024 issue, which features our annual Transportation Special Section. We've paired it this year with a focus on the Pacific Northwest and Hawai'i, as Alaska has close ties to both that reach far beyond lines of transportation. Even further out past our Pacific Ocean compatriots and our Canadian neighbors to the east, Alaska's reach extends to India and Singapore. Enjoy this issue that explores many of Alaska's far-flung business dealings.
