Drs. Rhonda Medows and Amy Compton-Phillips named to Modern Healthcare’s Top 25 Women Leaders list
Providence is proud to announce that Drs. Rhonda Medows and Amy Compton-Phillips were recognized by Modern Healthcare as two of 2021’s Top 25 Women Leaders. Dr. Compton-Phillips was also recognized as one of 2021’s Women Leaders to Watch in Healthcare. The profiles of all the honorees are featured in the February 15 print issue of Modern Healthcare.
“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.”
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.
“As a society, in the past year, we have made steps to address social determinates of health,” said Dr. Medows. “But, there is still a lot of work to do. Doing the hard work of community outreach, educating people most impacted by the Covid virus, providing equitable care and ensuring health access are a few ways we can provide leadership as a health system in our communities. I’m honored to be recognized as a leader in this area of work and look forward to mentoring future leaders.”
“It is an honor to be recognized alongside these inspiring women,” said Dr. Compton-Phillips. “It’s important to recognize female leaders, especially in our current pandemic environment which has caused so many women to leave the workforce. I strive to create a supportive, equitable environment for my team as we to collaborate and innovate in our pursuit of health for a better world.”
