37. APRIL ANTHONY
$760 million SOURCE: Health care AGE: 54 • RESIDENCE: Dallas SELF-MADE SCORE: Anthony stepped down in April as CEO of the health-and-hospice division of Encompass Health. She built the business by scooping up 17 distressed home-healthcare providers for under $500,000 between 1998 and 2001, then sold it for $750 million in 2014 to publicly traded medical provider HealthSouth, which took the Encompass name. The move comes amid Encompass’ potential spinoff of the division into a separate company.
