HBR ranks world's best performing CEOs this year: 9 are in healthcare

The nine healthcare CEOs who made Harvard Business Review's annual ranking of the top chief executives lead companies in biotech, biopharma, diagnostics and medical devices.

Michael Mussallem, chairman and CEO of Edwards Lifesciences, a medical device company that specializes in heart valves and hemodynamic monitoring, led the healthcare CEOs, ranking No. 12 on the list.

The rankings are based on company financial performance as well as environmental, social and governance ratings from CEO's entire tenure. The weight of ESG ratings was increased from 20 percent to 30 percent for this year's rankings. This change booted Amazon's Jeff Bezos from the list.

Here are the nine CEOs from the healthcare industry that made the list, and their ranking out of 100:

12. Michael Mussallem, Edwards Lifesciences (United States)

33. Hisashi Ietsugu, Sysmex (Japan)

47. Michael Mahoney, Boston Scientific (United States)

51. Olivier Filliol, Mettler Toledo (Switzerland) 

75. Marc Casper, Thermo Fisher Scientific (United States) 

77. Pascal Soriot, AstraZeneca (United Kingdom)
