“This year’s HME Woman of the Year finalists are exceptional leaders and role models in their companies and communities,” said Moxie President Christa Miehe. “We are thrilled to honor these relentless advocates whose dedication, innovation, and selfless service make a difference every single day—for their patients and the industry as a whole. It is our pleasure to honor these accomplished women.”

This year’s awards program saw 64 nominations for 38 nominees from 19 states. The nominees included a broad spectrum of providers, manufacturers, and other professionals in the HME, rehab, respiratory, and mastectomy industries. 

Finalists were selected by an honorary selection committee that included 2020 HME Woman of the Year Patty Mastandrea, CEO of MedCare Equipment Co.; Liz Beaulieu, editor at HME News; Andrew Miller, regional vice president of AdaptHealth; Jeff Bowman, vice president of HME sales at McKesson; and Jack Hogan, president and CEO of Health Complex Medical. The committee chose the finalists using criteria that included implementing new business processes, advocating on behalf of the industry, improving the lives of patients, and impacting their community through volunteerism. 

Mike Mallaro, CEO of VGM Group Inc. (VGM & Associates’ parent company), personally notified each of the finalists.
