ACP EVP recognized on Modern Healthcare ‘Most Powerful’ list

From the September ACP Internist, copyright 2009 by the American College of Physicians

ACP Executive Vice President and CEO John Tooker, FACP, MBA, has been named one of Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare.”

The list, published in the August 24 issue of Modern Healthcare online, is an annual recognition in which readers nominate influential industry leaders. As the health care debate has gained momentum, Dr. Tooker has increased what is normally an already robust schedule of commitments to national forums, including congressional hearings and legislator panels, to ensure that the views of internists are heard as reform legislation takes shape.

Dr. Tooker attributed his nomination to the Modern Healthcare list to the growing recognition of the importance of primary care, as well as the role that ACP has played in health care access, delivery, workforce and payment reform. The list is determined by readers, who submit votes for individuals they consider to be influential industry leaders. For this year’s list, over 52,000 readers cast over 500,000 votes.
