This program acknowledges and honors individuals who are deemed by their peers and the senior editors of the magazine to be the most influential figures in the industry in terms of leadership and impact.

Berdan’s steady, community-focused leadership has enabled Texas Health to meet increasing healthcare needs while maintaining a strong financial position as North Texas experiences continued regional growth, said C. John Wilder, Texas Health Board of Trustees chair.

“Barclay has guided Texas Health with a keen focus on service to North Texans,” Wilder said. “Under his leadership, Texas Health has engaged in collaborative partnerships to address emerging healthcare issues and better suit consumers’ needs and preferences. He has embraced innovations that allow medical professionals to meet consumers where they are most comfortable — from brick-and-mortar hospitals to virtual spaces.”

Wilder said Berdan is a champion of change.

“Barclay is leading the transformation of Texas Health from a system focused on sick care to one that revolves around the health and well-being of consumers,” he said.

Berdan has more than 46 years of healthcare leadership experience, serving as CEO of Texas Health for the past eight years. He was previously chief operating officer, senior executive vice president for system alignment and performance and served as president of Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth. He joined Texas Health in 1986 as vice president/administrator for Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth, overseeing the construction and opening of the hospital.

“Our 2022 ranking of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare recognizes these individuals who are transforming a major sector of the nation’s economy and are focused on improving care and payment models,” said Modern Healthcare Editor Mary Ellen Podmolik.
