Kevin E. Lofton, president and chief executive officer of Catholic Health Initiatives, is ranked No. 30 this year on Modern Healthcare magazine’s annual listing of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.”

Lofton, who celebrated his 10th anniversary as CHI’s top executive earlier this month, has now appeared on the magazine’s prestigious listing for nine consecutive years. A former board chair of the American Hospital Association and now a member of the board of directors of the Catholic Health Association, Lofton was ranked No. 48 in last year’s listing of the “who’s who” in U.S. health care. He is the only hospital executive in Colorado on the list.

The top spot this year went to Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. President Obama was No. 3.

Lofton leads the nation’s third-largest health system, which operates 87 hospitals in 18 states, including Colorado, where Centura Health – the state’s largest health system – is a joint operating agreement between Catholic Health Initiatives and the Adventist Health System.
