WINCHESTER — Mark Nantz, President and CEO of Winchester-based Valley Health System, has been named to Virginia Business magazine’s third annual “Virginia 500” listing of top leaders in the Commonwealth. He is one of 13 hospital and health system leaders chosen from the Healthcare/Biotech/Pharmaceutical sector.
Nantz joined Valley Health in 2020, in the third month of the COVID-19 pandemic, and his early efforts focused on ensuring a culture of employee and patient safety, financial stability, and strong connection to purpose. As a passionate advocate for Valley Health’s caregivers, he secured Board approval for two paycheck protection measures at a time when many health systems were electing instead to lay off employees, and was a leading voice in the debate regarding healthcare employee vaccination.
The Virginia 500 is “like the Fortune 500, but instead of focusing on companies it’s about people,” Editor Richard Foster explained in the Aug. 31 special issue. “We strive to inventory the most powerful and influential leaders and executives in Virginia across 20 major sectors.” Individuals are not nominated, but are selected after research by the editorial staff.
“I’m honored to be among this broad, distinguished group of leaders who are making a difference in the lives of Virginians,” Nantz said. “I love what I do, and am very proud of all our caregivers, in every location, who are committed to serving our community and ensuring our patients receive high quality, compassionate care.”
Valley Health is a nonprofit health system serving a population of more than 500,000 in the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, the Eastern Panhandle and Potomac Highlands of West Virginia, and western Maryland. The system includes six hospitals, more than 70 medical practices and Urgent Care centers, outpatient rehabilitation and fitness, medical transport, long-term care, and home health.
