The Commonwealth Institute Florida (TCI-FL), a network of successful business and professional women driving our community came together on June 14th to honor Florida’s Top 100 Women-Led Businesses at its 17th annual luncheon. The event, which took place at the Hyatt Regency Miami, celebrated the achievements of women who are leading the charge to the top of their industries in companies across the state. Darcy J. Davis, CEO of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, was among the honorees. Ranked eleventh on the list of 100, Ms. Davis is among the 15 percent of healthcare CEO’s nationwide who are women.



“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized for this state-wide award,” said Ms. Davis, who has led the unique safety net health care system for the past six years.  “I’m proud to empower women and promote gender equity and diversity within our 1,300-member workplace. In fact, diversity as an organization and among those we serve is one of our biggest strengths.”

Each honoree’s “words to live by” were displayed during the event including Ms. Davis’ quote: “Honesty, collaboration and following through on your commitments lead to success.”


Although TCI-FL has been hosting the Florida-based event for 17 years, this is the first time the non-profit organization really made a statewide effort to compile a list that represents businesses throughout all of Florida. It was also the first year that factors like innovation, customer service and employee programs were added to revenue to come up with the list and rankings.


“The organizations on this year’s diverse list are driving innovation across Florida and beyond with breakthroughs in product development, education and apprenticeship and new approaches in the delivery of clinical care and therapeutics. We are honored to recognize these 100 companies and the remarkable women who lead them,said Jacqui Kiviat, Executive Director, TCI-FL.
