President and CEO of ChristianaCare Janice E. Nevin, M.D., MPH was chosen for Modern Healthcare’s list of the Top 25 Women Leaders for the third time, in 2019, 2022 and 2023.

ChristianaCare’s daring strategic enterprise plan, established by Dr. Nevin,  focuses on crucial issues including resolving care inequalities, effectively supporting staff, streamlining access to health services, and speeding up change and development.

They highlighted many particular projects connected to the strategic plan, such as the introduction of Moxi cobots, which by managing low-value activities like deliveries, have improved the workflows for nurses and patient care technicians. According to Modern Healthcare, ChristianaCare created its first private, for-profit startup firm, CorriXR Therapeutics, last year. This company is employing CRISPR gene editing technology to create cancer treatments, starting with lung cancer.

“Dr. Nevin has set ChristianaCare on a bold path forward,” Nicholas M. Marsini, Jr., chair of the ChristianaCare Health System Board of Directors, said in a statement. “She leads the health system guided by our values of love and excellence, addressing difficult problems head on with courage and empathy. As ChristianaCare sets a model in so many ways for other health care organizations across the country, Dr. Nevin’s local and national impact make her most deserving of this recognition.”

Dr. Nevin has been president and CEO of ChristianaCare since 2014. Under her leadership ChristianaCare has become one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals, according to Healthgrades. The system has also been lauded as one of the nation’s best large employers overall and specifically for inclusion and diversity.

Modern Healthcare’s list of the Top 25 Women Leaders acknowledges and honors women executives from all sectors of the health care industry for their contributions to care delivery improvement, health equity, policy and gender equity in leadership.

“They are innovators and team-builders advancing their organizations. They are mentoring co-workers while inspiring others to pursue careers in the industry,” Mary Ellen Podmolik, editor-in-chief of Modern Healthcare, said. “And externally, they are forging coalitions to improve access to care for all patients. The women we’ve selected this year, from hundreds of nominations, are leading important advancements in the nation’s health care system.”

This year’s honorees are profiled in the Feb. 20 issue of Modern Healthcare magazine and online at www.modernhealthcare.com/topwomenexecs.
