Dr. Bayo Curry-Winchell, Urgent Care Medical Director and Physician with the Saint Mary’s Medical Group, was one of 75 honorees acknowledged by Becker’s Hospital Review as a Black healthcare leader to know. Recipients were recognized for their efforts in elevating the next generation of healthcare leaders. This comprised of building strong organizations, community partnerships, and clinical programs that promote health equity and inclusion.
For the report, analysts examined the diversity of leadership teams of 100 leading hospitals in the U.S. that are on the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll, 100 Great Hospitals list, and community-based and critical access hospitals. These organizations include academic medical centers, members of integrated delivery networks, children’s hospitals and safety-net hospitals. Data was based on publicly available information, and analysis was completed in 2021.
“My heart is filled with gratitude and appreciation to receive this recognition focused on health equity and inclusion,” added Curry-Winchell.
In addition to her role with Saint Mary’s, Dr. Curry-Winchell volunteers as the assistant medical examiner with the Washoe County CARES program, where she examines victims of child abuse. She was also appointed the public relations chair for the Washoe County Medical Society and named one of the Sierra Nevada Top 20 Most Powerful Women.
“The work that Dr. Curry-Winchell does for the community is nothing short of inspirational,” said Tiffany Coury, CEO of Saint Mary’s Health Network. “Through her multiple endeavors, Dr. Curry-Winchell repeatedly displays a commitment to patients and to improving the healthcare landscape for all. We are so lucky to have her as a part of our team at Saint Mary’s.”
