Since 2012, Kim Horn has lead Kaiser Permanente, the region’s only health system delivering comprehensive care and coverage. As president, she oversees more than 9,000 employees and the operation of 33 medical centers throughout Maryland, the District of Columbia and northern Virginia. The health system earns more than $4 billion in revenue and serves more than 800,000 members.
Horn is no stranger to leading large complex organizations. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, she served as president and CEO of Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Priority Health. During her 15-year tenure, Horn is credited with growing the organization from 100,000 to more than 600,000 members, with revenues exceeding $2 billion annually.
Her leadership extends beyond Kaiser Permanente. She serves on the boards of the Economic Club of Washington and the Washington Area Women’s Foundation. She has served as president for the Michigan Association of Health Plans, and director and chair of Tomorrow’s Child, an organization dedicated to supporting families who have experienced pregnancy loss or infant death.
“It is an honor to be included among this impressive, committed list of organizations and individuals,” said Horn. “As the region’s leading health system, we are committed to improving the quality of life for our members and the communities we serve. By having our expert teams working together to coordinate care for patients, investing in innovation and looking at the many factors that impact health, we are making the future brighter for all Marylanders. I’m proud to lead our dedicated team in that pursuit and to inspire others to do the same.”
