Modern Healthcare has named AdventHealth president/CEO Terry Shaw one of 2019’s 100 Most Influential People. The prestigious recognition program acknowledges and honors individuals who are deemed by their peers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare to be the most influential individuals in the industry in terms of leadership and impact.
In naming Shaw as 84th on the list, Modern Healthcare noted his more than three decades with AdventHealth; his co-creation approach to developing critical strategies for the organization; his incorporation of design thinking methodology to improve the consumer experience; and his advocacy for diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
This marks Shaw’s first appearance on the list, which features individuals from a range of sectors such as government, health care, and technology. The distinguished list of honorees also includes the likes of Seema Verma, administrator for the United States Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services; Jeff Bezos, president/CEO of Amazon; Tim Cook, CEO of Apple; and President Donald Trump.
“This year’s selection process was contentious and difficult. Many healthcare organizations made bold strides in the continued transformation of the industry. Many others were more cautious during a year that brought uncertainty over how the law of the land might change as a result of a federal court decision,” commented Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare editor. “The honorees chosen this year by Modern Healthcare and our readers are those who were fearless in their risky strategies and unapologetic in their rationale. Whether you agree with the compiled list or not, you can’t argue with the influence of these one hundred healthcare leaders. Congratulations to those honorees.”
The complete ranking is a main feature in the December 9, 2019 issue of Modern Healthcare magazine and can be viewed online.
