Littleton Adventist Hospital CEO Jillyan McKinney Named Denver Business Journal “40 Under 40” Winner

(Littleton, Colo.) Centura Health – Littleton Adventist Hospital is pleased to announce that its Chief Executive Officer, Jillyan McKinney, has been selected to be among the 2020 list of “40 Under 40” winners by the Denver Business Journal. The annual list highlights “outstanding local professionals under age 40 for their business success and community contributions.”

Jillyan was selected from more than 400 nominations submitted to the Journal. Her nomination cited her extensive accomplishments running not-for-profit, faith-based hospitals in Florida and Colorado, including her tenure as CEO of Avista Adventist Hospital in Louisville, CO and her promotion in 2019 to CEO of Littleton Adventist Hospital.

Her nomination also focused on Jillyan’s dedication to community involvement, having served on the board of Doctors Care and the executive leadership team for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. She participates in various other service capacities and has taken part in numerous health care speaking panels.

Her passions for health care and community, as well as her reputation for collaborative and engaging leadership, help Jillyan stand out among leaders in Centura Health – and now, the greater Denver business community.

“I am so grateful to be considered and acknowledged as someone who is making a difference,” Jillyan said. “I desire to be a great example for my children and others as my parents were for me, and I strongly believe that nothing gets better without being ‘the change that you wish to see in the world.’”

The “40 Under 40” winners will be announced in print on January 17. The awards will be presented in a ceremony on February 12, followed by published profiles of each winner in a special supplement of the Journal on February 14.
