DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Susan Salka, President and CEO of AMN Healthcare (NYSE:AMN), has been named by Modern Healthcare as one of 2020’s 100 Most Influential People. This year’s list focused on people who influenced the course of healthcare during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Modern Healthcare, its editors and readers selected the 100 most innovative and resilient candidates who helped healthcare maneuver through the unprecedented hardships of the pandemic and who “used current events like the election, racial injustice and public health as an inspiration to do better.” This year’s list also included a record number of women.
“I am grateful for this honor on behalf of the entire team at AMN Healthcare, and especially for our nurses, physicians, allied health professionals, and all others who are out there on the frontlines of the pandemic working to save lives and reduce suffering,” Salka said. “Despite the hardships of 2020, this has also been a year where AMN has found opportunities to continue to innovate our service offerings, advance our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and support our communities.”

The result was often groundbreaking.”
Aguilar said that Modern Healthcare editors and readers selected the 100 most innovative and resilient candidates who influenced the course of healthcare during a global pandemic, continued to press forward amidst uncertainty, and used current events like the election, racial injustice, and public health as an inspiration to do better.
