Renown Health President and CEO Tony Slonim, M.D., DrPH, FACHE, was recently selected as one of 50 esteemed honorees identified as Modern Healthcare’s “Most Influential Clinical Executives.”

Dr. Slonim is joined by an elite list that features leaders from top-rated institutions across the country, according to a June 25 press release from Renown, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director, National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases; Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and colleagues from Weill Cornell Medicine, Yale School of Medicine and UCLA Health, among others.

Fawn Lopez, publisher and vice president of Modern Healthcare, pointed to a number of recent accomplishments since Slonim joined Renown as CEO/President in 2014, including the launch in 2016 of the Health Nevada Project; his appointment in 2018 by then-Gov. Brian Sandoval as one of the two hospital officials on the state’s Patient Protection Commission; and recent work to affiliate with the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine to build a new clinically integrated network.

“Under Dr. Slonim’s leadership, Renown Health is an extraordinary force for good in our community,” James DeVolld, chair of the Renown Health Board and Managing Director, Commercial Banking at First Independent Bank, said in a statement. “He leads by example to serve our patients, employees and community, helping pave the way for other leaders and physicians to thrive at Renown. We are honored to serve our community alongside Tony as we work together to make a genuine difference for those we serve.”

The “
50 Most Influential Clinical Executives” awards and recognition program honors individuals in healthcare deemed by their peers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare to be paving the way to better health through their executive responsibility, leadership qualities, community service and achievements inside and outside of their organization.

Judging for the final ranking of the 50 Most Influential list is based on readers’ votes as well as input from the senior editors of Modern Healthcare. Dr. Slonim was among the initial nominee list of 150 names published in March 2021.
