Published: Apr 10, 2013

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 10, 2013) -- Dr. Ardis Hoven, internal medicine and infectious disease specialist at the University of Kentucky and president-elect of the American Medical Association (AMA), has been selected one of the “Top 25 Women in Healthcare.” 

 

The selection, made by the editors of Modern Healthcare magazine, honors executives in all fields of health care “for making a positive difference in the industry.”

 

Hoven, who received her undergraduate degree in microbiology and then her medical degree from UK, will begin her term as American Medical Association president in June, making her the third woman to hold that position.

 

Hoven, 68, previously served as president of the Kentucky Medical Association, where she first got involved in the 1980s to advocate on behalf of patients with HIV/AIDS. She has been on the AMA board of trustees since 2005, serving as chair from 2010 to 2011.

 

Others named to this year's impressive list includes Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Dr. Regina Benjamin, U.S. Surgeon General; Leah Binder, president and CEO of the Leapfrog Group; Maureen Bisognano, president and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement; Karen Daley, president of the American Nurses Association; Dr. Margaret Hamburg, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration; and Karen Ignagni, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans.
