Atlantic Health System Leader Joins National Virtual Conference on Women Leadership in Health Care

July 1, 2020

July 1, 2020 – Morristown, NJ – Next month, Atlantic Health System will join Modern Healthcare at its tenth annual Women Leaders in Healthcare Conference, held through a virtual gathering of workshops, networking and informational sessions. 

Amy Perry, CEO, Hospital Division, SVP, Integrated Care Delivery, Atlantic Health System served as a member of the 2020 Advisory Board for the event, and she will join leaders from across the country as part of a panel discussion titled: Economic Recovery Models for Financial Growth. The panel will examine the different ways health care systems have responded to the economic challenges of COVID-19 and how business models are changing for the future.

“I want to thank Modern Healthcare for finding an innovative way to hold this year’s conference,” said Perry. “COVID is highlighting our strategic and operational agility and is challenging us to think more creatively.  As we co-exist with COVID and navigate this journey, it is so important for women leaders to work together and share new ways to fulfill our mission of caring for our communities.”

Modern Healthcare bills the conference as a community where women in health care can find “meaningful connections, relevant content and an outstanding experience for women in healthcare, no matter their career level.” Traditionally held in person, this year’s event was moved online following the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will still feature opportunities for group chats and one-on-one conversations.
