For the sixth time since 2011, Mercy’s president and CEO is among the "Nonprofit Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know."

Becker’s Hospital Review chose Lynn Britton and other leaders who have “shown commitment to their community … and helped advance the health care industry as a whole through their advocacy and professional efforts.”

Britton, who is considred a "rare commodity in health care" by Catholic Health World, has been with Mercy for nearly two decades, serving as president and chief executive officer since January 2009. Before that, he served various roles, including senior vice president and vice president of Mercy’s supply chain operating division, Resource Optimization and Innovation (ROi). This year, he was named a "re-inventor" of health care by Wired Magazine.
