Modern Healthcare

Women are being passed up for promotions in healthcare as few make it to leadership roles, according to a new survey.

More than half (55%) of nearly 200 hospital and health system executives said women in their organization have been overlooked due to gender, executive search firm Korn Ferry found. Nearly two-thirds ranked their development programs for women as fair, poor or non-existent, and 76% said their company does not have sponsorship programs to help women advance.
