Dr. Susan Turney, MCHS CEO

The 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders honors physicians working in the health care industry deemed by their peers and an expert panel as the most influential in demonstrating leadership and impact. Physician leaders are innovators, excel in community services and demonstrate reputable executive authority.

Turney previously was voted as one of Modern Healthcare’s top 50 executives and leaders from 2012-14. This is her first as MCHS CEO.

“It’s an honor to be nominated and recognized with the many highly qualified physicians for this award,” Turney said. “It not only recognizes me, but the work that we at MCHS are doing to provide quality health care for our patients, research and education.”

Turney is one of 170 nominees, including just three from Wisconsin-based medical institutions or organizations.

Anyone can visit Modern Healthcare’s webs​ite to vote before Feb. 20. The ranking of the top 50 leaders will be published April 6 in Modern Healthcare magazine.​​

​​The Marshfield Clinic system provides patient care, research and education in more than 50 locations in northern, central and western Wisconsin, making it one of the largest comprehensive medical systems in the United States.
