Today’s spotlight: Gabrielle Finley-Hazle
President and CEO
Dignity Health Arizona Central and West Valley
Finley-Hazle is president and CEO of Dignity Health Arizona Central and West Valley, including St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Westgate Medical Center. Finley-Hazle has more than 20 years of experience in healthcare leadership. She holds a master’s degree in healthcare administration and a bachelor’s degree in human biology from Cornell University.
Lesson learned in 2020: “There are many lessons that I will take away from the pandemic including the power of prayer, resiliency, the importance of transformation and innovation. However the most powerful lesson was the tremendous impact of ‘Hello Humankindness.’ As a healthcare leader, all of these lessons have profoundly impacted me and our organization during the pandemic.”
Source of pride: “My proudest professional accomplishment is the opportunity to work with world renowned physicians and launch a new era of medical education with Creighton University. Our amazing physicians are innovators, scientists, and mentors. They inspire me each day to think of new ways to deliver healthcare services and they motivate us all to elevate the level of care we provide to the community. It’s a privilege to work in healthcare and to mentor others who want to pursue a healthcare career.”
Surprising fact: “I completed a 26.2 mile marathon in Alaska (and I am not a long distance runner). In addition, I used to want to own a basketball team.”
