ALABASTER – Dr. Jade Brice-Roshell, Shelby Baptist Medical Center’s Chief Medical Officer and director of the Hospitalist Program, has been named to Becker’s 2020 list of ‘African American Leaders in Healthcare to Know.’ She is one of only 70 honorees nationwide and one of only two leaders in Alabama.

 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.

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 Baptist, she has served on numerous medical committees, including by-laws, credentials, critical care, professional practice evaluation and medical executive, among others.

“Dr. Brice is a tremendous asset to our hospital, and being named for the second consecutive year to this nationwide list of top healthcare leaders reaffirms how incredibly fortunate we are not only to have her as a member of our medical staff and draw upon her experience in her practice of medicine, but also as a leader in her role as CMO,” said SBMC CEO Daniel Listi.

According to a statement released by Becker’s: “The best healthcare 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 healthcare delivery, develop healthcare policy and advocate for the next generation of leaders.”
