Nationwide List of Women Hospital, Healthcare Leaders Includes South Nassau Communities Hospital's Dr. Efferen


Members of the list were selected for their accomplishments in leading healthcare and hospital organizations, including improvement of patient care, development of relationships between providers and facilitation of organizational growth

Oceanside, NY, December 02, 2012 --(PR.com)-- For the third consecutive year Becker's Hospital Review has named Linda Efferen, MD, chief medical officer at South Nassau Communities Hospital, to its prestigious listing of the top "120 Women Hospital and Healthcare Leaders to Know" in the United States.

To create the list, the editorial team at Becker's Hospital Review accepted nominations for the most influential women in healthcare through its website and weekly online newsletters. After several months of collecting nominations and researching the background of each nominee, the editorial team narrowed the contenders to a list of 120 top women leaders. Members of the list were selected for their accomplishments in leading healthcare and hospital organizations, including improvement of patient care, development of relationships between providers and facilitation of organizational growth.

Each featured woman was lauded by her colleagues for contributing significant value to the healthcare industry. Members of the list do not and cannot pay to be included on this list. The publication repeats this process annually to ensure an up-to-date compendium. Becker's Hospital Review is a Chicago-based publication focusing on hospital and healthcare news and business advice. The primary audience for the publication is hospital executives and healthcare industry leaders.

As South Nassau’s chief medical officer, Dr. Efferen (a resident of South Huntington) is responsible for facilitating medical staff interactions with hospital administration and the governing board and for assuring the effective and efficient delivery of quality medical care consistent with the hospital’s mission. She also assists with strategic planning and execution, as well as the implementation of disease management programs, and monitors the effectiveness of management practices and productivity indicators.

Dr. Efferen is board-certified in hospice and palliative medicine, critical care medicine, pulmonary medicine and internal medicine. She has been listed in the Consumers Research Council of America’s Guide to America’s Top Physicians, Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors: New York Metro Area (for seven years), Best Doctors’ Best Doctors in America and has received a host of awards/honors, including a spot in the 2010 class of Long Island Business News’ Long Island’s Top 50 Business Women.

A clinical professor of medicine at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, Dr. Efferen is a member of a number of professional organizations, including the New York Academy of Science, American College of Chest Physicians, American College of Critical Care Physicians, American College of Medical Quality, American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
