February 18, 2019, Morristown, NJ – Atlantic Health System, one of Fortune Magazine’s Best Places to Work for Women, is proud to announce Amy Perry, CEO, Hospital Division & SVP, Integrated Care Delivery, Atlantic Health System, was recently named to Modern Healthcare’s Top 25 Women Leaders list.

The list is compiled every two years and honors women from all health care industry sectors. In celebrating Perry’s accomplishments, Modern Healthcare recognized her for her contributions to improving access and affordability for patients and for supporting the professional advancement of women at Atlantic Health System.

“I am proud to be part of a leadership team that includes so many accomplished and inspirational women” said Perry. “The female leaders at Atlantic Health System, along with my peers on this list, are changing the dynamic of boardrooms and C-suites across the industry. In this crucial time for the future of health care, we are innovating in exciting new ways to advance the delivery of care for all of our patients.”

“Unfortunately, the gender gap plagues healthcare just as much as it does other industries. Women CEOs comprise an estimated 30 percent (at most) of the overall C-suite,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor for Modern Healthcare. “But the executives named to this year’s Top 25 Women Leaders list exemplify how diversity results in success, both clinically and financially. Congratulations to those leaders in the 2019 class.”

This recognition is the latest achievement for Perry during her time at Atlantic Health System. She was named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s December 2017 list of 130 Women Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know and was named one of the top health care leaders in New Jersey for 2018 by NJBIZ.
