Central Georgia Health System CEO to Address National Healthcare Conference for Women

Dr. Ninfa Saunders to Discuss Her Journey as a Female Healthcare Executive

MACON, GA (Thursday, August 7, 2014) – Central Georgia Health System (CGHS) Chief Executive Officer Ninfa M. Saunders, FACHE, will provide the keynote address at Modern Healthcare's 2014 Women Leaders In Healthcare Conference, a gathering of women leaders from across the nation.

Dr. Saunders, whose career has taken her across the United States and around the world, will share her personal journey, the way it has shaped who she is and how it influences the decisions she makes for CGHS. Dr. Saunders continues to position CGHS as a national healthcare leader through her strategic leadership, by pursuing meaningful partnerships and by engaging employees and partners towards sustainable and relevant success. Her inspirational message will wrap up Modern Healthcare's conference for females in healthcare leadership.

“I am grateful for this opportunity to speak to women in leadership roles. I believe that a woman, or a man for that matter, should continue to learn and grow intellectually by seeking every opportunity to use her gifts and skills, training and education, to make a critical difference in all that she does professionally and personally. More importantly, I would advise women in the workplace to remember the things that truly matter, the things that will last after 5:00 and after retirement – the love of family and friends, faith, and giving back to others,” said Dr. Saunders.

The conference will take place on Thursday, August 14 in Nashville, Tenn. and will address topics including mergers and acquisitions, patient safety and quality, and balancing career with life.
