North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System President and CEO Michael Dowling was listed as the country’s 51st most powerful health-care leader out of the 100 people who made it onto the list compiled by Modern Healthcare.
Dowling’s spot was 10 slots higher than last year’s ranking, when he was 61st.
President Barack Obama topped the list, followed by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
One of the more familiar names Dowling beat out was Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s medical and health-care correspondent, who was listed as the 100th most powerful health-care leader.
Before being named North Shore-LIJ’s CEO, Dowling served as state director of health, education and human services and deputy secretary under former Gov. Mario Cuomo.
