Dr. Anthony Slonim
President and CEO, Renown Health
Under Slonim’s leadership, Renown a couple of years ago launched the Healthy Nevada Project with the goal of doing comprehensive population health work. The project has sequenced genetic data on 60,000 people and was recently expanded across the state. The system is also building out a new clinically integrated network after joining forces with the University of Nevada School of Medicine. In 2018, Slonim was appointed by the governor as one of two hospital officials on the state’s Patient Protection Commission, which advises policymakers on access and equity issues. During the pandemic, Renown was an early leader in adopting home monitoring systems, offering free ICU beds to those in need, and expanding disease monitoring. Slonim wrote passionately about the loss of his father to COVID and used that experience as the backdrop to advocate for more family and staff support structures.
