As physicians and nurses, the members of Modern Healthcare’s Most Influential Clinical Executives class of 2023 gained valuable insight into the needs of patients and fellow front-line workers. They’ve built on that foundation throughout their careers, continuing to advance the health and well-being of communities while gaining more responsibilities as leaders.

The honorees’ deep understanding of the day-to-day requirements of medical professionals helps position their organizations—and the industry—for success.

As CEOs, chief medical officers or chief nursing officers, some of the executives have created innovative recruitment and retention plans for tens of thousands of nurses at health systems. Others have overseen massive construction projects to expand access to much-needed services. Insurance company leaders have developed strategies to improve outcomes, while those in the C-suite at retail giants disrupt the billion-dollar healthcare industry and professional organization directors fight for their members in the halls of Congress.

Modern Healthcare is proud to recognize and honor their efforts. Congratulations to the class of 2023!
