AMC Health is proud to celebrate Women’s History Month by highlighting all the pioneers, trailblazers, and trendsetters in healthcare. Diversity and equity are important features for a proper system. We applaud all who have shaped the way care works today, and those who will transform how it operates tomorrow.

To highlight the amazing work done by powerful female leaders in healthcare, we have been highlighting some of valuable achievements and accomplishments of women across the globe.

Florence Nightingale: Known as the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale's work during the Crimean War laid the foundation for professional nursing. Her emphasis on sanitation and hygiene drastically reduced mortality rates in hospitals.

Elizabeth Blackwell: Elizabeth Blackwell made history as the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States. Her perseverance opened doors for women in medicine, inspiring generations of female physicians.

Lee Crumpler: Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler was the first African American woman to earn a medical degree in the United States. Her groundbreaking achievements paved the way for future generations of minority women in medicine.

Margaret Chan: Margaret Chan served as the Director-General of the World Health Organization, leading global efforts to address public health challenges such as pandemics and infectious diseases. Her leadership and advocacy for health equity have left a lasting impact on healthcare worldwide.

The bar has been set high for modern care, from the groundbreaking contributions of Florence Nightingale and Elizabeth Blackwell to the trailblazing achievements of Lee Crumpler and Margaret Chan. We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this exciting journey.

We at AMC Health are excited to see where the industry goes from here, as fresh voices and new ideas continue to emerge from the talented women in healthcare. We are blessed to have a team filled with intelligent and dedicated women who lead the way in changing how care is thought about, delivered, and improved.
