Lifetime Achievement Award – Peter Fine

Peter Fine was appointed president and CEO of Phoenix-based Banner Health in November 2000. 14 years ago, he helped created “Banner’s 2020 Vision,” a 20-year plan to re-invent the organization. Most people would say it’s impossible to plan that far ahead with an ever-changing economy, constantly evolving regulation and an industry in turmoil. But Fine’s vision has helped Banner Health become the biggest private employer in the state and a healthcare company that generates $5 billion in annual revenue, while investing all profits after expenses back into the system.
