Congratulations Peggy

Congratulations Peggy

We could not be more proud of our president and founder, Peggy O’Kane. She’s a warrior on the health care front and she keeps on fighting for what’s right – health care quality.  That’s evident yet again with her unanimous election to the Board of Directors for the National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC).


“I am deeply honored to have been elected as a board member of this esteemed organization with colleagues who are equally committed to the advancement of quality health care,” said Peggy. “The National Coalition on Health Care is just that—a coalition of diverse organizations and perspectives but with the same goal in mind: to improve health care quality and affordability for all. I am eager to work with NCHC Board and find solutions to the many complex issues of health care.

Congratulations Peggy!

We all know Peggy O’Kane is a leading expert in health care quality and measurement. Her accomplishments speak for themselves…she’s a member of the National Academy of Medicine, and received the Picker Institute Individual Award for Excellence in the Advancement of Patient-Centered Care, as well as the Gail L. Warden Leadership Excellence Award from the National Center for Healthcare Leadership.

Modern Healthcare magazine has named O’Kane one of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” 11 times, most recently in 2016, and one of the “Top 25 Women in Healthcare” 3 times.

In addition to the NCHC Board, O’Kane also serves on the board of the Milbank Memorial Fund and is Chairman of the Board of Healthwise. She has also served on several other boards including the Institute of Medicine and the National Quality Forum.

And she received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from Johns Hopkins University where she earned a master’s degree in health administration and planning .

Yep, we are proud of our President, Peggy O’Kane!
