Intermountain Healthcare President and CEO Dr. Marc Harrison has been named to Modern Healthcare’s 2020 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives list. This annual publication recognizes the physician and nurse leaders deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be paving the way to better health through their leadership qualities, innovation, community service, and achievements inside and beyond their respective organizations. Honorees will be included in the June edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.
Due to COVID-19 this edition of the list was published alphabetically rather than in Modern Healthcare’s traditional 1-50 ranked format. Dr. Deborah Birx, coronavirus response coordinator with the Trump administration, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, were honored as co-recipients of the no. 1 designation.
This is the fourth consecutive year Dr. Harrison has been honored among the Top 50. Modern Healthcare specifically recognized his leadership in value based care and precision medicine, and lauded his support of sending Intermountain clinicians to New York City in April. Dr. Harrison is the only representative of a Utah-based institution included in the list.
