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.

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.
