In addition, Dr. Rice Roshell has been named to Becker’s 2019 list of African American Leaders in Health care as one of only 68 honorees nationwide.


According to a statement released this week by Becker’s:
“The best health care delivery requires leadership from diverse backgrounds and experiences. This list highlights African Americans who have taken on leadership roles across the country at hospitals and health systems as well as in national organizations. Both established and emerging leaders are featured on this list. These individuals influence how their organizations approach health care delivery, develop health care policy and advocate for the next generation of leaders.”

Dr. Brice Roshell is board certified in internal medicine. She received her undergraduate degree in biology from Xavier University in Louisiana and a master’s degree in public health from the University of Southern Mississippi before obtaining her medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, D.C. She completed her internship and residency at Tulane University in New Orleans and later earned a master’s degree in business administration from Auburn University.

Dr. Brice Roshell began her medical tenure at Ochner Medical Center in New Orleans followed by a number of years in Georgia and Nebraska serving at several medical centers as a member of their hospitalist program before joining Shelby Baptist Medical Center in 2015. Since joining Shelby, she has served on numerous medical committees, including by-laws, credentials, critical care, professional practice evaluation and medical executive, among others.

“Dr. Brice Roshell has been an asset to Shelby Baptist Medical Center since joining the Brookwood Baptist Health family in 2015, and she has proven herself a natural leader who is well-respected among her peers,” said Shelby Baptist CEO Daniel Listi. “This most recent accolade of being named one of only 68 African American leaders in health care nationwide by Becker’s Hospital Review solidifies how incredibly fortunate we are to have her experience to draw from in this critical partnership between our medical staff and hospital administration.”
