Cooley Dickinson Honored Among Top Women-led Businesses in Massachusetts

NORTHAMPTON — Cooley Dickinson Hospital was honored as one of the top women-led businesses in Massachusetts during an award ceremony last week.

The hospital, which is led by President and CEO Dr. Lynnette Watkins, ranks #21 on the list of 100 businesses statewide. The list was assembled by the Women’s Edge, a nonprofit organization that works to advance women in leadership positions. It was featured in Boston Globe Magazine’s annual “Women & Power” issue.

“Being acknowledged among the top 100 women-led businesses in the state is a testament to the dedication of Cooley Dickinson Hospital and our system, Mass General Brigham, to transforming the healthcare landscape with an emphasis on inclusivity and innovation,” Watkins said. “Recognitions like this one fuel our commitment to advancing the quality of our care across the Pioneer Valley.”

The Women’s Edge ranks organizations by examining a number of variables, including revenue, diversity, operating budget, number of employees, and innovative projects.

The announcement was made on Nov. 3 at Boston Marriott Copley Place, with Mass General Brigham serving as presenting sponsor. Click here for the entire list.
