Stamford Health is a non-profit independent healthcare system with more than 3,500 employees committed to compassionately caring for the community and offering a wide-range of high-quality health and wellness services. Patients and their families can rely on comprehensive person-centered care delivered through the system’s 305-bed Stamford Hospital; Stamford Health Medical Group, with more than 30 offices in lower Fairfield County offering primary and specialty care; a growing number of ambulatory locations across the region; and support through the Stamford Hospital Foundation.
As one of the area’s largest employers, Stamford Health has a comprehensive and robust staff and leadership development program, and women play an important role across the organization at all levels. As a whole, 75 percent of the workforce is female, and women hold 50 percent of the leadership positions in both the system and the Medical Group. Of note, all of these female leaders have received promotions from within the organization.
The largely-female nursing staff plays a vital role in ensuring that quality, safety and exceptional patient-centered care are provided each and every day. This is reflective of the organization’s ongoing dedication to continually advancing its nurses’ professional practice through shared governance, education, certification, innovation, research and evidence-based practice.
