The Power of Women: Crestwood Medical Center’s Women in Health Care Leadership
Women in Health Care Leadership
According to the U. S. Department of Labor, women make 80% of the health care decisions in this country. Making decisions not only about their own health, women are also caring for children, spouses, aging parents and sometimes, grandparents and other relatives. Crestwood Medical Center is fortunate to have women leaders who also care about the community as a whole. From Senior Management to Board of Trustees, Medical Staff leadership, and Women’s Advisory Council, Crestwood is surrounded and supported by strong, influential, dedicated women who care about all aspects of the health of our community. These leaders volunteer their time and talents to Crestwood to assure quality care and service excellence and help make our community a better place to live.
