The list features hospital and health system presidents and CEOs who also hold medical degrees. All members featured on this list have demonstrated outstanding leadership and clinical expertise throughout their careers. Many individuals have served in the top spots of multiple hospitals throughout their careers in addition to community boards and national organizations. These physicians also have accomplished clinical careers, giving them unique insight into the healthcare industry.
“It is an honor to receive this recognition and be associated with such talented health care leaders throughout the country,” says List. “I am very fortunate to work alongside an incredible administrative team and brilliant, engaged faculty at Moffitt who contributed to this great honor.”
Hospitals led by physicians consistently appear as top hospitals among rating and ranking sites such as U.S. News & World Report and Healthgrades. Many CEOs featured on this list have led their institutions through significant growth projects and technology installations, and continue to keep an eye on future development.

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 recognition is just one of many accolades the cancer center has received. In early August, Moffitt was once again ranked as a top 10 cancer hospital by U.S. News & World Report. Serving patients from all 50 states and more than 100 countries, Moffitt boasts patient outcomes that beat the national average. Moffitt is one of 49 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and the only one based in Florida.
Additional accolades include the 2016 Working Mother 100 Best Companies national list, No. 4 ranking on DiversityInc’s 2016 Top 10 Hospitals and Health Systems list, and the 2016 Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality.
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on editorial judgment and discretion, and nominations were considered when making selections for this list.
