The editors highlighted the bold strategic enterprise plan that Dr. Nevin has set for ChristianaCare, which focuses on vital areas, including addressing care disparities, effectively supporting employees, simplifying access to health services and accelerating transformation and growth.

They noted a number of specific initiatives related to the strategic plan, such as the rollout of Moxi cobots, which have improved the workflows for nurses and patient care technicians by handling low-value tasks like deliveries. Modern Healthcare also cited that this past year ChristianaCare spun off its first-ever private, commercial startup company, CorriXR Therapeutics, which is using CRISPR gene editing technology to develop cancer therapeutics, starting with lung cancer.

“Dr. Nevin has set ChristianaCare on a bold path forward,” said Nicholas M. Marsini, Jr., chair of the ChristianaCare Health System Board of Directors. “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,” said Mary Ellen Podmolik, editor-in-chief of Modern Healthcare. “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 healthcare system.”

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