HOUSTON (May 17, 2023)

Amalia Stanton, senior vice president and chief strategic communications and marketing officer for Memorial Hermann Health System, has been named to the National Diversity Council’s Power 50 List, which recognizes female senior executives working to improve their communities as well as their companies. Stanton was honored during the 19th Annual National Diversity & Leadership Conference in April.

The national award honors C-level executives from top companies who demonstrate dedication to community service and who empower other women to succeed.

“I’m honored to be recognized together with this group of talented senior executives,” Stanton said. “We are on a journey at Memorial Hermann to redefine health care for the diverse populations we serve and to help create healthier communities, now and for generations to come.”

During her more than 15-year tenure, Stanton has driven growth and brand awareness, and helped to build Memorial Hermann’s reputation as a leading, trusted, high-quality health care provider in Greater Houston and across the nation. Stanton also co-leads Memorial Hermann’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity Community Council.

“Amalia is very deserving of this recognition,” said Dr. David Callender, president and CEO of Memorial Hermann. “She is an innovative leader with a strategic mindset and has helped drive a number of our efforts to transform health care in the communities we serve."

Stanton also serves on the executive leadership team of the March of Dimes Houston Board of Directors and the Houston Holocaust Museum Advisory Board.
