The Healthcare Technology Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Women Leaders in Medical Devices of 2022. With the medical device industry advancing at an unprecedented rate, new and exciting developments in robotics, materials science, analytics, and other technologies have accelerated the production of breakthrough devices that are improving outcomes for patients. Amid a global pandemic that has exacerbated complications in manufacturing and distribution, creative thinking has been crucial for medtech leaders as they devise proactive supply chain solutions in order to mitigate production delays and keep costs competitive. These women executives have demonstrated first-rate leadership in areas such as testing, telemedicine, orthopedics, surgery, wound care, and monitoring, among others.

Everly Health’s Cindy R. Kent has marked her first months as Chief Operating Officer by helping lead the company through incredible growth: in fact, Everly Health recently announced it has enabled more than 45 million COVID-19 tests since the onset of the pandemic in addition to countless additional tests to help screen and diagnose conditions such as STIs, colon cancer, diabetes, and more. Also ringing in the new business year in a big way is Chief Commercial Officer Niamh Pellegrini of Nevro Corp, who helped her company secure UnitedHealthcare coverage for its high-frequency 10 kHz therapy—the only FDA-approved spinal cord stimulation system for treating painful diabetic neuropathy.

The women on this year’s list have distinguished themselves through substantial contributions not only to their companies, but to the medical device industry as a whole. Each nominee was evaluated based on her leadership skills, professional acumen, and technology input, among other factors. Awardees were ultimately chosen using feedback submitted through the nomination entries while factoring in further research into each individual’s career achievements.
