6/28/2012 - C. Wright Pinson, MBA, M.D., deputy vice chancellor for Health Affairs and CEO of the Vanderbilt Health System, has been named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s 2012 list of “100 Physician Leaders of Hospitals and Health Systems,” featuring some of the top physician leaders in health care.
“Successful hospitals require bright leadership and clinical excellence and physician executives provide the valuable skill sets to meet both of these needs,” according to a press release issued by Becker’s. “The executives on the list have crossed the gap between clinical and management sectors, providing an important perspective on some of the greatest challenges facing health care today.”
Physicians on the list were selected based on their health care experience, awards they’ve received and commitment to quality care. Many were nominated by their peers and the list was vetted by industry experts. Hospital and health system leaders can’t pay to be included on this list.
