The most 'influential' US Healthcare CEOs

CEOWorld Magazine has released its latest list of "World's Most Influential CEOs And Business Executives," and multiple healthcare leaders based in the U.S. are on the list. 

For its global ranking of the best CEOs for 2024, the magazine examined more than 2,300 CEOs at large public companies across 61 countries. Rankings are primarily based on the financial returns for the CEO's entire tenure, which accounts for 60% of the final ranking. The magazine also factored in a company's track record on environmental, governance and social issues, as well as market shares, change of market capitalization, and brand's newsworthiness and impact.
