Six NewYork-Presbyterian leaders have been named to Crain’s New York Business’s list of “Notable Women in Health Care,” the publication’s inaugural list honoring health care executives, researchers and clinicians who have profoundly impacted New York City through their professional, civic and philanthropic achievements.

“We are delighted to celebrate these remarkable leaders and the outstanding work they do to benefit patients, staff and our surrounding community,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. “Each of these talented honorees makes a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.  We applaud their exemplary leadership, vision and their commitment to NewYork-Presbyterian’s culture of respect and excellence.”

Crain’s recognized the following NewYork-Presbyterian leaders: Laura Forese, M.D., M.P.H., executive vice president and chief operating officer of NewYork-Presbyterian; Emme Deland, M.B.A., senior vice president and chief strategy officer of NewYork-Presbyterian; Susan Mascitelli, R.N., B.S.N., senior vice president and liaison to the Board of Trustees of NewYork-Presbyterian; Jaclyn Mucaria, M.P.A., FACHE, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Queens; Stacey Petrower, M.P.A., president of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital; and Rainu Kaushal, M.D., M.P.H., physician-in-chief of healthcare policy and research at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and chair of the Department of Healthcare Policy and Research at Weill Cornell Medicine.

Crain’s also recognized Phyllis Lantos, special advisor to the president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian, and Maxine Frank, Esq., executive vice president, chief legal officer and general counsel of NewYork-Presbyterian, calling them “trailblazers,” and acknowledging that the list omitted some well-known names in areas such as law and finance to focus on other corners in the industry.

The list highlights the careers of 78 female health care leaders in New York City. Nationally, women accounted for 76 percent of the hospital workforce in 2017 and 78.5 percent of all non-hospital health services jobs, Crain’s noted. When choosing the honorees, Crain’s also looked at community service, a track record of mentoring others, and promotion of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
