September 07, 2016

TAMPA, Fla. — For the second year in a row, Moffitt Cancer Center President and CEO Alan F. List was named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s 110 Physician Leaders of Hospitals and Health Systemslist. The 2016 edition features presidents and CEOs of hospitals and health systems who also hold medical degrees.

“I am honored to be included on this list, which contains so many nationally known leaders within the hospital community,” says List, M.D. “It is a dynamic group of individuals who are helping to define the future of our health care.”

Each of the recipients has demonstrated outstanding leadership and clinical expertise throughout their careers, leading initiatives to improve their individual organizations and the health care of the communities they serve.

List is internationally recognized for his many contributions in the development of novel, more effective treatment strategies for myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). His pioneering work led to the development of lenalidomide (Revlimid®) from the laboratory to clinical trials, which went on to receive fast-track designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and approval for the treatment of patients with MDS and multiple myeloma. 

This new ranking is just one of many accolades the cancer center has received as it approaches its 30th anniversary. In early August, Moffitt was ranked No. 6 on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Cancer rankings. In March 2015, Moffitt earned the prestigious nursing Magnet designation recognizing our nursing excellence. Serving patients from all 50 states and more than 100 countries, Moffitt boasts patient outcomes that beat the national average. Moffitt is one of 47 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and the only one based in Florida.

Additional accolades include the 2015 Working Mother 100 Best Companies national list, No. 6 ranking on DiversityInc’s 2016 Top 10 Hospitals and Health Systems list, and the 2016 Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality.

The Becker’s Hospital Revieweditorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on editorial judgment and discretion, and nominations were considered when making selections for this list.
