Today, Modern Healthcare released its 2018 list of ‘100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.’ For a sixth year, Banner Health President and CEO Peter Fine has been named to the list.

In its seventeenth year, the 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.

“I am proud to see Banner Health represented among the top leaders of the health care industry,” said Fine. “This recognition is a reflection of the exceptional clinicians, support staff and leadership team who I have the privilege to work with.”

Over the past few years, Fine has led Banner Health through significant growth and transformation. From the expansion into urgent care to partnerships in medical imaging and rehabilitation to the strategic alignment with the University of Arizona, forming Banner’s academic medicine division, Fine has boldly led the organization to quickly adapt to changes in the health care industry. He has also managed Banner Health through a transformation initiative that is focused on delivering care to its customers when, where and how they want it at an affordable price. Through this initiative, Banner’s new mission, values and purpose were formed to ensure that the customer is at the forefront of every decision that is made.

Fine ranked #51 on the 2018 list of ‘100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.’ The complete ranking is a main feature in this week’s issue of Modern Healthcare magazine, and a feature article and profiles of the winners are available at
