Stephen B. Bonner
Stephen B. Bonner joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in 1999, and led CTCA as President and Chief Executive Officer for 14 years. He has served on its Board since 1996. A passionate advocate of patient-centric, quality-driven healthcare, he has championed the process of placing patients at the center of their own medical decisions by empowering them with comprehensive, unbiased information about their medical conditions. Under his leadership and direction, CTCA has achieved a marked improvement in patient satisfaction and has evolved into one of the preeminent cancer treatment centers in the nation. As a result, the number of patients and families it serves has grown dramatically.
Mr. Bonner’s commitment to unsurpassed patient care has recently earned him a place on Modern Healthcare magazine’s prestigious list of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.” He shares this distinction with national luminaries, such as President Barack Obama, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The individuals on this list were selected by the readers and editors of the magazine as the most influential leaders in healthcare.
Prior to joining CTCA, Mr. Bonner was the Executive Vice President of Keyport Insurance Company, where he led the development of a new annuity market. Before that, he was President of the Construction Information Group of the McGraw-Hill Companies.

In addition to serving on the CTCA board, Mr. Bonner is also a member of Eastern and Western Regional Medical Centers Boards. He maintains proactive volunteer leadership involvement with several organizations close to his heart. He is a Lifetime Trustee of the American Architectural Foundation, Chairman of the Board of William Mitchell College of Law, Director of the National Foundation of Women Legislators, and Director of the Tennis Opportunity Program.
