Justin Bayless is more than the name behind our healthcare services company. Justin is a native Phoenician who started accompanying his father, Dr. Michael Brad Bayless, to Bayless Integrated Healthcare from the time he was nine years old.
Justin attended St. Mary’s High School in Phoenix and then matriculated to Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia on a presidential scholarship where he graduated with academic merits such as Phi Beta Kappa, Beta Gamma Sigma, and Omicron Delta Kappa. After Morehouse, Justin continued his career in business with Morgan Stanley as an Investment Banker in New York City.
Justin returned to work with Dr. Bayless in 2008 and served as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer until being promoted to President and CEO in 2010. Under Justin’s leadership, Bayless Integrated Healthcare has pioneered the way to incorporating the most important healthcare services under one roof: primary care and behavioral health. While most patients have to patronize multiple locations for healthcare services, Bayless has created a proprietary model of wellness that incorporates addressing the mind and the body as equally important.
As our Visionary, Justin continues to develop new value-based contractual relationships with diversified payer types including medicaid, medicare advantage, long-term care, employee assistance programs, workers’ compensation and commercial health plans while continuously expanding the Bayless service array, locations, and brand.
Justin’s most redeeming quality is his penchant for challenging the status quo. Justin has been featured and recognized by the Arizona Republic as one of the top 35 Arizona Entrepreneurs under 35 in 2013, one of the top 40 under 40 in the 2014 Generation Next list published by AZ Business Magazine, the 2015 Healthcare Civic Leader Award by Arizona Men’s Health Expo, 2017 Top 20 Influential Millennials Honoree by AZ Business Magazine, 2017 Non-Physician Healthcare Hero by the Phoenix Business Journal, 2017 Spirit of Enterprise Awardee by the W.P.

Justin’s leadership goes beyond the clinics. Justin has been appointed by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to serve as a public member on the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners, the Arizona Inter-agency Coordinating Council (ICC) for Infants and Toddlers, and most recently the Arizona Commission for African American Affairs. He is a member of the Phoenix Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., a community board member of Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital, and a philanthropic supporter of the Boys and Girls Club Metro Phoenix. He is also the Chairman of the Arizona Therapeutic Learning Center’s “Monarch Gardens” and a member of Phoenix Country Club.
