Jennifer McCarthy ’01, Putting Patients First
Jennifer McCarthy combines business acumen and emotional intelligence to make sure the healthcare operations she oversees never lose sight of patient needs and satisfaction. As a healthcare executive with a passion for business and healthcare delivery, Jennifer has served in various c-suite positions within large health systems including, most recently, hospital CEO. Her time with Health First, Orlando Health, and Inova, Inc., has allowed her the opportunity to serve others, make sustainable, significant operational impacts to billion-dollar organizations, and improve the lives and health of the community in which she works.
Jennifer received her bachelor of arts in organizational development in 1995 from Rollins College and her MBA from Florida Tech in 2000. She is a recognized Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives. “My passion lies in finding the right balance between operational needs and serving the needs of our patients,” says McCarthy. “Florida Tech provided the foundation for me to utilize sound financial and organizational practices and stay connected to the emotional needs of those we care for.”
McCarthy was featured in Florida Tech’s 60th Anniversary special edition book, “60 for 60: Celebrating Sixty Years of Alumni at Florida Institute of Technology.” Copies are available for purchase here.
