Once again, Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder has been nominated for Modern Healthcare’s annual listing of the most influential people in health care.

Anyone can cast a ballot by clicking here. Voting is open through June 26.

As a national leader and innovator in the fast-changing environment of health care, Van Gorder has appeared in several previous versions of the prestigious ranking by the industry magazine.

His initiatives at Scripps have reduced costs while boosting the quality of patient care, helping to make the San Diego-based health system an industry model and placing Scripps among the top five large health care providers in the nation as recognized by Truven Health Analytics.

Also making this year’s Modern Healthcare ballot was Scripps Health Chief Academic Officer Eric Topol, MD, who also previously appeared in the listing.

Dr. Topol is an internationally recognized cardiologist, geneticist, researcher and digital medicine pioneer who is leading a technology revolution that promises to transform the delivery of health care services, lower the cost of medicine and individualize the treatment of many illnesses.

The 300 nominees were selected from thousands of submissions, Modern Healthcare editors said. Online voting and magazine senior editors will determine the winners, who will be announced in the Aug. 24 edition of the publication.
