Scripps Health has been named one of the Top 10 Non-Profit Companies for Executive Women by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE). 

The list, featured in the February/March issue of +Working Mother Magazine, recognizes organizations whose policies and practices encourage women’s advancement and whose numbers at the highest levels of leadership demonstrate that commitment.

Scripps was recognized for its #leadership and development programs that help women advance in the workplace.

“Scripps strongly believes in the importance of empowering women in the workplace, particularly in our competitive health care industry,” said June Komar , who has held multiple leadership positions over the years at Scripps before becoming corporate executive vice president of strategy and administration. “Scripps supports its female employees through numerous programs such as tuition aid, mentoring and leadership development, which aim to help those who want to advance and reach their fullest potential in the workplace."

Of Scripps’ 13,700 employees, 76 percent are women, and women make up 68 percent of the management group. Scripps has 61 executives accountable for the success of all aspects of the organization; 24 are women (39 percent).

“The nonprofits on our list illustrate how women are excelling in the health industry,” said Dr. Betty Spence, NAFE president. “Women are running hospital operations and controlling major decisions – opportunities that at for-profit companies still often elude women. We salute our winning nonprofits for capitalizing on what women bring to the table.”

Three-time track and field Olympian Steve Scott didn't want to risk his quality of life to treat his prostate cancer. 

In his own words, this is why he chose Scripps Proton Therapy Center.
