For the third year in a row, Renown Health President and CEO, Anthony Slonim, M.D., DrPH, is being honored nationally for his innovation and leadership in healthcare right here in northern Nevada.
Dr. Slonim is among the 150 esteemed nominees short listed for Modern Healthcare’s “50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders” honor. The list features executives from elite hospitals across the country including Cleveland Clinic and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Even more impressive, Dr. Slonim is one of just 34 west coasters and the only Nevadan to be recognized. Modern Healthcare will select the final top 50 based partially on public voting open now through April 28.
Renown Health Board Chair, Blake Smith, nominated Dr. Slonim for this exclusive honor. And much like the trailblazing work Dr. Slonim has done in our community, this nomination is putting Reno healthcare in the national spotlight. Under Dr. Slonim’s leadership, Renown has welcomed groundbreaking partnerships and strategic collaborations. Most notably, Renown collaborated with the Desert Research Institute, and personal genetics company, 23andMe, to pioneer one of the world’s leading community-based genetic health studies with more than 10,000 northern Nevadans taking part.
Dr. Slonim has also forged affiliations with the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, SGU School of Medicine, and Stanford Health Care, Stanford Children's Health and Stanford University School of Medicine to expand specialty and subspecialty care and bring more highly trained care providers to the Silver State. He also announced $64 million in new facilities, services and lifesaving technology for our region; increased Renown’s community benefit by more than $1 million; and helped raise $7.5 million to launch a pediatric residency while bringing more pediatric specialists to our region as well as $5 million for the Child Health Institute which is striving to become one of a handful of pediatric ACOs in the country.
Dr. Slonim co-chairs the Truckee Meadows Healthy Communities’ board, a collaborative of thought leaders that looks at the health and healthcare needs of the more than 500,000 residents who call northern Nevada home and determines what solutions are needed to improve both healthcare and overall health and well-being.
Nationally, Dr. Slonim was recently named the inaugural editor-in-chief for the American Association of Physician Leadership’s (AAPL) Physician Leadership Journal and online Physician Leadership Library. In this role, he leads an editorial board of international board-certified physician executives – reaching 16,000 physician executives worldwide. For the last four years, Dr. Slonim has chaired the American Journal of Managed Care's ACO Coalition and was recently appointed to the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Care Systems Council. In this role, he is a thought leader representing more than 250 integrated health systems in the U.S. and their concerns to the AHA Board.
Help recognize Reno, Renown and Dr. Slonim by voting for Modern Healthcare’s “50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders” every day through Friday, April 28.
