No. 1: Brian Gragnolati

Health Care Power 50


As president and chief executive officer of Atlantic Health System, Gragnolati is one of the most influential health care executives in the state. In January, he became chair of the American Hospital Association, extending his influence nationwide to AHA’s 5,000 member hospitals.

At Atlantic Health, Gragnolati oversees an integrated health care delivery system with a workforce of 16,500 that serves more than half the state including 11 counties and 4.9 million people.

The company is developing new strategic partnerships to expand access to care while investing not only in new therapies, discoveries and equipment, but also in innovative ways to enhance care and accessibility and, ultimately, improve affordability.

Gragnolati has fostered an inclusive culture of caring for employees and the patients and families within the communities the health system serves. Need evidence? Atlantic Health System has consistently been included on Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For over the past ten years.

Gragnolati has built a diverse leadership team that embraces his patient-centric vision for providing care. Now, the national industry will get an up-close look at that philosophy.
