CHI’s Kevin Lofton Named One of America’s “Top 25 Minority Executives”

04/09/12 Press Release

Kevin Lofton, president and chief executive officer of Englewood-based Catholic Health Initiatives, has been named one of the “Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare” by Modern Healthcare magazine, a national business publication.

Lofton has now appeared on all four of the biennial listings of top minority executives in the U.S. since the weekly magazine began the exclusive roster in 2006.

The selection of the Top 25 was based on several key criteria, including the ability of leaders to effect change in the health care industry, to demonstrate a willingness to share expertise and to assume a key leadership role outside of one’s own organization or company. A former chair of the American Hospital Association’s board of directors, Lofton, a widely recognized national leader in the industry, also ranked No. 45 in Modern Healthcare’s listing this year of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.”

Lofton, CHI’s president and chief executive officer since 2003, oversees the second-largest faith-based health care system in the nation, with hospitals and other facilities in 19 states, including Colorado, where Centura Health – the state’s largest health system – is a joint operating agreement between CHI and PorterCare Adventist Health System.
