The Top Diversity Leaders award honors top healthcare executives from diverse backgrounds and the organizations influencing policy and care delivery models across the country.

“To most effectively serve patients and the community, our teams must include multiple voices that represent differing points of view and individuals from a variety of backgrounds,” Finley said. “At Atrium Health Navicent, our first culture commitment is ‘to create a space where we all belong.’ To do that, we must include diverse viewpoints and endeavor to reach the underserved so we can truly improve our community’s health and wellness, elevate hope and advance healing for all. Thank you, Modern Healthcare for this honor!”

In his nomination, community leaders described Finley as a “strong champion” and “living example for others to emulate” in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion.

“Healthcare organizations widely promote their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts when they're first announced. But it's more important to track success and make sure those initiatives deliver on the long-term results the companies and communities they serve expect. This year, we increased the cadence of our diversity recognition program and expanded eligibility to include companies as a whole, as well as individuals,” said Modern Healthcare editor, Aurora Aguilar. “The 2021 class of Top Diversity Leaders lead the pack in healthcare. These are people and companies that exemplify ‘walking the walk.’ Congratulations to all of our honorees and thank you for the hard work you do on the important issue of inclusivity.”
