Each year, Becker’s recognizes physician leaders who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and clinical expertise throughout their careers, leading initiatives to improve their individual organizations and the healthcare of the communities they serve. Since being nominated in 2014, 2015 and again in 2016, Dr. Slonim has been honored alongside innovative leaders from world-class organizations like Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Mount Sinai and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Under Dr. Slonim’s leadership, Renown Health has welcomed numerous community partnerships and strategic collaborations. Most recently, he led Renown’s landmark affiliations with Stanford Medicine; the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine; and St. George’s University, Grenada to expand specialty and subspecialty care available to northern Nevadans and bring more highly trained care providers to the Silver State.
Focused on Renown’s mission of improving community health and well-being, Dr. Slonim emphasizes that achieving higher health status must include improving a community’s positive health outcomes while also decreasing negative ones. His commitment to this idea is evidenced by increasing Renown’s community benefit by more than $1 million, raising $5 million for the Child Health Institute, and $7.5 million to launch a pediatric residency at Renown.
Dr. Slonim is the nation’s first quadruple board-certified physician as well as a professor, author and fellow. He also serves on the American College of Physician Executives board, Health Care Systems Board of the American Hospital Association, and chairs the board of the Certified Medical Representatives Institute.
These accomplishments show Dr. Slonim’s commitment to improving health and healthcare right here in the Truckee Meadows and inspiring communities around the country to do the same.
