Apicha CHC is proud to announce that its CEO Therese Rodriguez has been recognized as one of Crain's 2019 Notable Women in Health Care.
The second annual Crain award aims to celebrate, honor, and recognize the women that have made a notable impact in the health care industry. In the health care world, women make 80% of health care buying decisions and represent 65% of the health care workforce. To say their presence is not an influencing factor in its success would be an understatement.
Among the honorees are exceptional clinical and administrative leaders, entrepreneurs, health care providers, physicians, and scientists.
