EMERYVILLE, CA (June 18, 2022)—Imamu Tomlinson, MD, MBA, was named to the 2022 class of Modern Healthcare’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives.

Recipients are chosen by their peers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare.

“Clinician leaders have shouldered a heavy load for healthcare organizations and the country at large throughout the past few years. We are proud to recognize those leaders who have risen to the occasion and then some,” says Fawn Lopez, Publisher of Modern Healthcare.

Lopez continues, “These 50 honorees have demonstrated leadership and innovation in a time of crisis and made a vital impact on the success of their organizations, the well-being of the healthcare workforce, and the health of their patients and communities. We congratulate and thank them for their dedication to the advancement of healthcare.”

As an emergency physician and healthcare executive, Dr. Tomlinson leads Vituity’s team of more than 5,000 clinicians who deliver care to patients across the country.

“I truly appreciate this recognition and wish to acknowledge all those who, through their brilliant work, help make our organization so amazing,” says Dr. Tomlinson. “I’m humbled by this honor and am proud to lead an organization so committed to helping others and transforming healthcare for the benefit of all patients and communities.”
