Intermountain Healthcare Leader Named One of Nation’s Most Influential People in Healthcare

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, August 22, 2017 / -- Intermountain Healthcare's president and CEO, Marc Harrison, MD, has been named among Modern Healthcare magazine's “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.” Dr. Harrison is listed nationally at No. 26 and is the only person from Utah named to the rankings.

Earlier this year, Modern Healthcare also published its list of the “50 Most Influential Physician Executives,” and Dr. Harrison was on that national list at No. 10.

According to the magazine, the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare awards and recognition program honors individuals in healthcare who are deemed to be the most influential individuals in the industry, in terms of leadership and impact. The ranking began with nominations, which were narrowed to a final ballot of 300 leaders from the healthcare industry, high-level government administrators and executives, elected officials, academics, and thought leaders.

The final 100 honorees were chosen by readers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare for their leadership in the varied sectors of the industry, whether provider organizations, government agencies, associations, insurers or supplier companies.
