Yale New Haven Health CEO Marna P. Borgstrom recognized as one of the 100 Most Influential People by Modern Healthcare

Tuesday, December 10, 2019
New Haven, CT (Dec. 10, 2019) – Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS) and Yale New Haven Hospital, has been recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of 100 Most Influential People.

This prestigious 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.

“YNHHS has enjoyed unparalleled success under Marna Borgstrom’s exemplary leadership,” said Vincent Calarco, chair YNHHS Board of Trustees. “This honor underscores what all who work with and for Marna already know – she is committed to making healthcare better and more accessible for all who need it.”

Borgstrom has been with YNHHS since the beginning of her professional career. She received her master's in public health at Yale School of Medicine, and since 1979, has held a variety of staff and leadership roles before being named president and CEO of YNHHS and YNHH in 2005. Over the past 14 years, both the Hospital and Health System have grown and focused on integrating, cost effective patient-centered healthcare services. Borgstrom serves on several national and local boards including the AHA and New Haven Promise and chairs The Coalition to Protect America’s Healthcare and the Healthcare Institute.

“This year’s selection process was contentious and difficult. Many healthcare organizations made bold strides in the continued transformation of the industry. Many others were more cautious during a year that brought uncertainty over how the law of the land might change as a result of a federal court decision,” commented Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare editor. “The honorees chosen this year by Modern Healthcare and our readers are those who were fearless in their risky strategies and unapologetic in their rationale. Whether you agree with the compiled list or not, you can’t argue with the influence of these 100 healthcare leaders. Congratulations to those honorees.”
