The Commonwealth Institute and The Boston Globe have selected Codman Square Health Center as one of Massachusetts Top 100 Women-Led Businesses. This is the Health Center’s recognition for the 6th year in a row. Codman is led by CEO Sandra Cotterell, RN who has been at the Health Center since 1994 and CEO since 2011.

The Commonwealth Institute is a nonprofit that supports women-led businesses, and it considers revenue, operating budgets, number of full-time employees, diversity, innovative projects, and more when it weighs candidates and organizations for the Top 100 list.

In a recent interview with Cotterell, she commented on how she inspires other women to leadership. “The inspiration to lead is a little different than the inspiration to care for patients, and it’s important that women in health care see that those in leadership roles can make a real difference in patient care,  staff satisfaction, and in their community.”

Codman Square Health Center is open seven days a week, serves over 22,000 patients with over 115,000 annual visits, and has a staff of more than 320. A majority of its staff are members of the Dorchester community.
