Lelia Wilkerson was one of four national finalists for the HME (Home Medical Equipment) Equipment Woman of the Year award presented Oct. 23 at the Medtrade Home Medical Equipment Conference and Expo in Atlanta. She has been director of Great River Health Systems-Heritage Medical Equipment and Supplies for 19 years.

The 38 Woman of the Year nominees included providers, manufacturers, association executives and other professionals in home medical equipment, rehabilitation, respiratory care and mastectomy services. Finalists’ selection was based on implementing new business processes, advocating on behalf of the industry, improving the lives of patients and impacting the community through volunteerism.   

“These women are trailblazers and are passionate advocates for not only the industry, but for the patients they serve,” said Clint Geffert, president, VGM & Associates, a division of the VGM Group and sponsor of the award. “They exemplify the dedication and innovation required to have a positive impact on their business, coworkers, customers and the communities they serve.”
