Dr. Prem Reddy Recognized Among the Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare

Prem Reddy, M.D., FACC, FCCP, Chairman, President, and CEO of Prime Healthcare Services, has been named to Modern Healthcare’s prestigious list of “Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare” for 2016. This is the fourth time he has been recognized on this esteemed list, which this year includes Lloyd Dean, President, and CEO of Dignity Health, Dr. Trent Haywood, CMO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, Bernard Tyson, President and CEO of Kaiser Permanente and Dr. Vivek Murthy, United States Surgeon General.

“I am honored and humbled to be recognized along with so many innovative and talented leaders in healthcare,” said Dr. Prem Reddy. “I look forward to guiding our health system forward in its mission to save and transform hospitals, ultimately improving the way patients are cared for and the way healthcare is delivered.”

In 2001, Dr. Reddy formed Prime Healthcare Services with a mission to save hospitals, improve community healthcare and provide the very best care to patients. Prime Healthcare now owns and operates 42 hospitals in 14 states and is the fifth largest for-profit hospital system in the nation. Among numerous accolades, Prime Healthcare has been recognized as one of the “10 Top Health Systems” and one of the “15 Top Health Systems” in the nation three times. Since 2003, 33 Prime Healthcare hospitals have been recognized among the “100 Top Hospitals” in the nation.

Additionally, Dr. Reddy and his family founded the Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation, a nonprofit foundation that has donated millions toward charities, including providing college scholarships, public healthcare education, and free community clinics. Dr. Reddy also founded the Prime Healthcare Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that owns 11 of the Prime Healthcare hospitals.

Modern Healthcare sponsors this biennial recognition program. According to Modern Healthcare, the name of the program reflects the skills needed to improve the healthcare delivery system in the post-healthcare reform era. This year’s nomination process for the top minority executives focused greater attention on the ability to effect change and diversity in the healthcare industry, leadership qualities, professional achievement, and innovation in the industry. Reader nominations are used to create the final selection by Modern Healthcare. The selection process is extremely competitive as there are a large number of nominations for this award, and Dr. Reddy’s accomplishments in the industry were unparalleled.
