Dr. Marc Harrison
President and CEO, Intermountain Healthcare
Under Harrison’s leadership, Intermountain continues to push the envelope with innovations across almost all sectors of operations. That includes the February 2021 announcement of a DNA-mapping effort aimed at improving understanding of genetics and disease in children, and to eventually create new treatments. It’s an extension of a larger effort Intermountain announced in 2019. Intermountain also pushed forward with new payment and care delivery models, including a rethinking of primary care. The efforts have resulted in reduced ED visits and inpatient admissions. And in the aftermath of the civil unrest that unfolded in 2020, Harrison mandated that the health system undergo a full review of its inclusivity efforts.
