BOSTON, September 20, 2021 — Press Ganey, the national leader in healthcare consumer and workforce engagement, today announced that Tejal Gandhi, MD, MPH, CPPS, chief safety officer, was recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of 2021’s Top Diversity Leaders.
Now an annual recognition program, the Top Diversity Leaders award takes great pride in honoring the top healthcare executives from diverse backgrounds and the organizations influencing the policy and care delivery models across the country. In doing so, they are also highlighting the continued need to nurture diversity in their organizations.
“Dr. Gandhi is a renowned executive with an unwavering commitment and dedication to improving patient and workforce safety, developing innovative transformation strategies and advancing equity throughout the healthcare industry,” said Patrick T. Ryan, Press Ganey chairman and chief executive officer. “Her work is driving awareness and improvement throughout the country, despite the uncertainties brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing face of healthcare consumerism.”
As an executive sponsor of Safety 2025: Accelerate to Zero and Press Ganey’s Equity Partnership, Dr. Gandhi aims to improve the interconnectivity of employee engagement, patient safety and diversity, equity and inclusion throughout hospitals and health systems across the nation.
“Healthcare organizations widely promote their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts when they're first announced. But it's more important to track success and make sure those initiatives deliver on the long-term results the companies and communities they serve expect,” said Modern Healthcare editor, Aurora Aguilar. “The 2021 class of Top Diversity Leaders lead the pack in healthcare. These are people and companies that exemplify ‘walking the walk.’ Congratulations to all of our honorees and thank you for the hard work you do on the important issue of inclusivity.”
Dr. Gandhi will be recognized at Modern Healthcare’s Top Diversity Leaders Gala on Thursday, December 9 in Chicago.
