DECEMBER 5, 2022

The past year has seen retail executives make billion-dollar moves into the care delivery space. Chain drugstores and big-box companies, perhaps better known for their pharmacy and over-the-counter verticals, have taken steps toward expanding urgent care, post-acute care, primary care and telehealth services—presenting a potential disruption for traditional healthcare companies amid economic headwinds. Some health system leaders, seeking to respond to the challenge, have partnered with retail companies on so-called recession-resistant services. Others have purchased companies or created verticals of their own to defend their market share and provide care outside the hospital setting. Regardless of sector, many of the leaders appearing on Modern Healthcare’s 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare list this year are seeking to shore up their companies’ offerings in the face of an uncertain future.
