Northwell CEO Named One Of Healthcare’s ‘Most Influential’ Leaders

Michael J. Dowling

Northwell Health President and CEO Michael J. Dowling has been named to Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” list for the 11th consecutive year, underscoring his standing as one of the industry’s preeminent leaders.

Dowling, who ranks number 38 on the 2017 list, is the top-rated hospital executive in New York State. He has a long history of service in health and human services, from his time overseeing health, education and human services in former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo’s administration, to his stewardship in leading Northwell’s rise to becoming the state’s largest health system.

That transformation into an $11 billion organization with a culture of care and focus on innovation has helped drive the growth of the Northwell system, which now has 22 hospitals and more than 550 outpatient facilities throughout the New York metropolitan area.

“Healthcare has never been more complex or more vital to the communities we serve,” said Dowling, who was one of Glassdoor’s highest rated CEOs in June. “Not only have we had to respond to the political turmoil in Washington, but to the ever-changing environment of evolving technologies and health care needs.”
