Banner Health CEO named one of the ‘Most Influential’ by Modern Healthcare
Peter S. Fine recognized for third consecutive year
Banner Health’s position as a national leader has been affirmed and sustained with Peter S. Fine’s recognition in Modern Healthcare’s 2016 “Most Influential People in Healthcare.”
Fine, Banner’s president and CEO, is listed at No. 25 on the 2016 list. In 2015, Fine was No. 27 and in 2014 he was No. 51. Fine first appeared on the list in 2011 as No. 85.
Released Monday by Modern Healthcare, a leading weekly trade publication, the Most Influential was compiled via national ballots and nominations by health care industry leaders and professionals. Topping the 2016 list is President Barack Obama.
“While it’s gratifying to receive ongoing recognition, this is really a reflection of Banner Health’s position as a national leader,” Fine said.
Others recognized in the top 10 on the Most Influential list include Kaiser Permanente Chairman and CEO Bernard Tyson, Ascension President and CEO Anthony Tersigni, Aetna Chairman and CEO Mark Bertolini, HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell and CMS Administrator (acting) Andy Slavitt.
Fine was appointed president and CEO of Banner Health in November 2000.
