Article: Running a Hospital is a Woman’s Job

Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 10.17.22 AMI had to share this Boston Globe article with you: Running a Hospital is a Women’s Job. It is about the number of women running healthcare organizations in Boston. As someone who works for a number of hospitals and health systems in eastern Massachusetts, this is something I have always appreciated. (Check out my earlier blog post titled “How My Mother Prepared Me for A Career in Healthcare.”)

There are several powerful female healthcare executives in Massachusetts not mentioned in this article. I’m fortunate to work with Dianne J. Anderson, President and CEO of Lawrence General Hospital. In Dianne’s organization, there’s an entire team of powerful female leaders (some good men as well). I’ve also had the pleasure of interacting with Lynn Nicholas, President and CEO of the Massachusetts Hospital Association. And there are more that I won’t list here.

In healthcare marketing, I’m used to seeing powerful, smart women leading the marketing initiatives of an organization. I love working with them and learning from them. However, it is also nice to see highly capable women actually running hospitals, health systems and other healthcare operations. It needs to happen more frequently beyond Massachusetts.
