CHICAGO (Oct. 4, 2021) — Justin Bayless, CEO of Phoenix-based Bayless Integrated Healthcare, is among Modern Healthcare’s 2021 class of Top 25 Emerging Leaders. Modern Healthcare, the leader in healthcare business news, research and data, annually honors emerging leaders all age 40 or under, who have made significant contributions in the areas of innovation and financial, operational and clinical excellence early in their careers.
“The roller-coaster ride of the COVID-19 pandemic—now more than 18 months long and counting—has tested leaders in all sectors of the healthcare industry and at all levels. The men and women who make up this year’s class of the Top 25 Emerging Leaders have certainly risen to the challenges. Even in their young careers, many have impressive track records of innovation and accomplishment predating the pandemic,” noted Modern Healthcare editor, Aurora Aguilar.
“The profiles of this year’s honorees, all age 40 or under, display the breadth of diversity and talent in this generation of healthcare leadership. Congratulations to all.”
Justin Bayless is known for his relentless pursuit of improving the patient experience.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized by Modern Healthcare along with such a prestigious list of innovative healthcare leaders,” Bayless said. “Our country’s health care system is broken, and we can’t accept the status quo. I’m encouraged by the work my peers are doing, and I remain committed in my quest to end the enormous health inequities and disparities among underserved and vulnerable populations.”
Bayless Integrated Healthcare’s model offers physical, emotional, behavioral, and addiction health care services supported by over 400 employees, including 215 providers, across eight locations in central Arizona. In addition, Bayless is a pioneer in telemedicine – the innovative firm was the first healthcare provider to be designated as a Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) accredited telehealth provider in 2018.
This year’s honorees are profiled in the October 4 issue of MH magazine and online at ModernHealthcare.com/top-emergingleaders.
