On January 29, 2020 by Jodi Boyne
Rahul Koranne, M.D., MBA, FACP, has been named president and CEO of the Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA). Koranne has served as MHA’s senior vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer since 2015.
As MHA’s first chief medical officer, he increased the engagement of the association’s member clinicians, staff and leaders across the state in the collaborative work that hospitals and health systems do to improve the quality of health care.
“Rahul’s experience includes leadership in both a large health system and one of Minnesota’s smallest critical access hospitals,” said Sara Criger, MHA board chair; senior vice president, Allina Health; and president, Mercy Hospital and United Hospital. “In addition, Rahul brings the leadership qualities the board of directors was seeking as well as a deep commitment to our mission of improving the health of Minnesotans. He will accelerate the association’s strong collaboration with other health care stakeholders in Minnesota.”
“Transforming the delivery of health care will require innovative partnerships not only among health care providers, payers and state and federal government, but also with other key stakeholders, such as employers and community service organizations,” Koranne said. “We owe this to the people we serve and to the dedicated people who work hard every day in health care, from front-line care teams to senior leaders. I am excited to advance the work of Minnesota’s hospitals and health systems to make Minnesota the very best state in the country in which to receive and provide health care.”
