In a very special episode of Mary Free Bed’s Advisory Group podcast, Be Advised, we are joined by Airica Steed Ed.D, MBA, RN. Steed is the incoming President and CEO of Metro Health System in Cleveland Ohio and former Executive Vice President & System Chief Operating Officer of Sinai Chicago Health System, President of Mount Sinai and Sinai Children’s Hospital.

Steed has been listed in 2020 Modern Healthcare among its “Top 25 healthcare Innovators” and last year named as a “Top 25 Minority Leader”. Becker’s Hospital Review named this innovative and dynamic leader as one of the “Top 120 Women Hospital & Health System Leaders to Know” and placed her on their list of “75 Black Healthcare Leaders to know.”

In her role at Sinai Chicago, Steed led cultural, clinical and operational transformations that led to $200M in improvements over 3 years, while achieving substantial improvements in publicly reported quality measures.

During her conversation on Be Advised she discusses:

  • Her career track and how she evolved into her leadership roles
  • What her passions in healthcare are
  • What health care innovation means to her
  • How post-acute care can support overall health equity
  • What value she sees in post-acute partnerships
  • And more!
