These high achievers are developing policy, leading change and guiding healthcare delivery improvement across the country. This award program recognizes women in leadership roles, spotlighting their administrative and professional accomplishments.
“Honorees of the 2021 Top 25 Women Leaders in Healthcare award program have a mission to combat the longstanding imbalance of gender equity at the top rungs of leadership by promoting and hiring more female executives. They serve as mentors and create workplaces that embrace diversity and inclusion. And last year, they did this all while guiding their organizations through a global pandemic,” said Modern Healthcare editor, Aurora Aguilar. “The honorees, chosen out of hundreds of nominations, represent passionate leadership and measurable results in bringing greater diversity to the C-suite and beyond. Because of the importance of these efforts in improving healthcare, we also are excited to announce that from now on we will be recognizing these outstanding leaders every year. Congratulations to the Class of 2021.”
“We are extremely proud of Deb and grateful for her leadership which has guided Bergen New Bridge through this pandemic while never losing site of the importance of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Robert Pacicco, Chair of the CarePlus Bergen Board of Trustees. “This is an amazing accomplishment that reflects Deb’s passion and tenacity and it is also a testament to the essential role of the Medical Center in caring for underserved communities by providing equitable access to care including COVID-19 testing and vaccinations.”
