Modern Healthcare names Yale New Haven Health CEO Marna Borgstrom among most influential people in healthcare for 2017

New Haven, CT (August 22, 2017) – Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO, Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS) and Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH), has been named among the Top 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare for 2017. Borgstrom was ranked #59.

“YNHHS has enjoyed unparalleled success under Marna Borgstrom’s exemplary leadership,” said Vincent Calarco, chairman of the YNHHS Board of Trustees. “This honor underscores what all who work with and for Marna already know – she is committed to making healthcare better and more accessible for all who need it.”

Borgstrom has been with YNHHS since the beginning of her professional career. She received her master's in public health at Yale School of Medicine, and since 1979, has held a variety of staff and leadership roles before being named president and CEO of YNHHS and YNHH in 2005. Over the past 12 years, both the Hospital and Health System have grown and focused on integrating, cost effective patient-centered healthcare services. Borgstrom serves on several national and local boards and chairs the Vizient Board (Dallas, TX) and The Coalition to Protect America’s Healthcare (Washington DC).

“I’m honored to be in the company of such a distinguished group of healthcare leaders and advocates across the United States,” said Borgstrom. “I consider this recognition to be a reflection of the great work that is being done by all our YNHHS boards, employees and medical staff members to ensure that we make a positive impact on the lives of the patients we are privileged to serve.”

This is the 16th annual publication of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare ranking. The final ballot comprised 300 candidates based on those nominations. Some 74,000 ballots were cast representing more than 370,000 votes for individual nominees.
