EXECUTIVE SPOTLIGHT SERIES | AVANOS MEDICAL’S EDWINA PAYNE


For Avanos Medical, achieving the impossible is all part of the plan. Headquartered in Alpharetta, the medical device company is focused on delivering clinically superior breakthrough solutions that can help patients get back to the things that matter.

As SVP and CIO of Avanos Medical, Edwina Payne is engaged with supporting the company’s recent divestiture and implementing IT systems to support its remaining division. Her goals for Avanos Medical are centered around growth, both from the company’s core businesses and through acquisitions.

Avanos Medical is pioneering chronic care and pain management solutions and is committed to addressing some of today’s most important healthcare needs, such as reducing the use of opioids while helping patients move from surgery to recovery.

“Our products deliver pain relief without the use of opioids,” says Payne. “They are game changers for doctors and patients to alleviate pain during and post-surgery.”

As the home to more than 700 technology companies, the city of Alpharetta provides a number of opportunities for Avanos Medical to continue its growth in the technology community. The city’s thriving tech sector offers Avanos Medical connections to talent in the healthcare industry and a network of tech companies in the community.

“There are so many advantages to our company being located in Alpharetta,” shares Payne. “It creates a huge ecosystem for us as we tap into talent or new ideas, which is important to us as we look to our future growth.”
