Amy Mansue, president and CEO of Inspira Health is one of 26 female hospital and health organization CEOs nationwide recently honored by Becker’s Hospital Review.

Women are increasingly taking on the top executive positions at hospitals and health systems across the U.S., bringing an important perspective to the organization.

“Becker’s Hospital Review is thrilled to honor these women in leadership roles. We accepted nominations for this list and selected members based on their leadership roles and accomplishments. Individuals do not pay and cannot pay to be featured,” said a spokesperson.

Mansue, who has a nearly 30-year background in the health care field, was named president and CEO of Inspira Health in 2020. She is particularly dedicated to educating future healthcare professionals and plays a key role in forming and strengthening partnerships with the local medical community and educational institutions. Before taking on her current role, she acted as executive vice president and chief experience officer at RWJBarnabas Health.

The award winners were scattered across 15 states from Washington to Florida.

Additionally, Inspira Health is proud to announce that three of its clinical leaders were presented with Nursing Leadership Awards by The Organization of Nurse Leaders of New Jersey (ONL NJ). The award winners included Rachel Lindsay, MSN, RN, as the 2022 Administrative Supervisor recipient; Tracey Leer, MSN, RN, CEN, FNP-BC, as the 2022 Divisional Leader recipient; and Sami Abate, PhD, MSHS, MSN, RN, CCRN, CNML, as the 2022 Professional Recognition recipient.

The Administrative Supervisor Award recognizes Lindsay’s exceptional leadership, guidance, and service to Inspira Health as the nurse leader present during shifts not generally covered by administrative leaders. The Divisional Leader Award recognizes Tracey Leer’s exceptional leadership of the Emergency/Pediatric Nursing Operational Services at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill and Inspira Health Center Woodbury. The Professional Recognition Award recognizes Sami Abate for her nursing leadership through professional achievement that has made a significant impact on nursing.

“Nursing leaders are critical to the success of every care team,” said Mansue. “I congratulate Rachel, Tracey, and Sami for their exemplary leadership, commitment to clinical excellence and continuous efforts to advance nursing practice. They truly elevate the care we provide to our community.”
