Linda Marzialo ‘Women to Watch Class of 2017’ by Nashville Healthcare Council
“The women selected for the Class of 2017 are dedicated, talented, passionate, smart, collaborative innovators. In short, they are people we want to watch as leaders in their respective fields modeling ways to create a more efficient, effective healthcare system.
The 10 women honored this year represent the village required to deliver quality care across the continuum in a highly complex, heavily regulated industry. Provider, payer, researcher, consultant, executive, industry advocate, design innovator, strategic planner, program director, educator, lifelong learner, problem solver, leader, mentor … no single title describes these women who willingly wear the many hats necessary to create transformative change in American healthcare.
Generous with their expertise and energy, these incredible women also serve on numerous community boards and industry organizations. Despite busy days, they find the time to mentor the next generation of healthcare professionals. They are unafraid to address the big issues. They lead by example. And they never forget the work they do has an impact on patients.
For these … and a host of other reasons … the Class of 2017 is truly made up of women to watch.”
