“Crain’s Custom is honored to present this inaugural section on Notable Women in Health Care to celebrate a history uniquely shaped by women. The health care sector has long had a workforce of so-called pink-collar jobs: nurses, social workers, home health aides and the like. Nationally, women accounted for 76% of the hospital workforce in 2017, and 78.5% of all non-hospital health services jobs.
As chief executive of NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan—the East Harlem hospital where she was born—Alina Moran leads the day-to-day operations of a 338-bed acute care facility that has a $355 million budget and 2,500 employees. Like her Puerto Rican parents, most of the hospital’s patients are Latin American, and Moran ensures that Metropolitan provides quality care to a diverse population. She previously was chief financial officer of NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, overseeing budgets and more than 450 employees in a range of financial functions. Her tenure at the public health system also includes nine years negotiating and implementing 18 Health + Hospitals managed care contracts. Moran has a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Brown University and a Master in Public Administration from Baruch College.”
