OAKLAND – Shannon Striebich, president of St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, was honored this morning with the Healthcare Leadership Award, a recognition given by The Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) during its annual membership meeting held on Mackinaw Island. Shannon was selected for the award based on her proven record of providing exceptional leadership to St. Joe’s and her strong commitment to the health and well-being of communities served by the hospital. In addition to the award, MHA also donated $1,000 to Grace Centers of Hope, a charity chosen by Shannon.
Since joining the St. Joe’s administration in 2002, Shannon has held positions of increasing responsibility. In 2016 she was appointed president of the hospital and tasked with completing its $300 million campus rebuild. She was the lead executive on construction of the hospital’s $145 million South Patient Tower and $60 million Surgical Pavilion.
Beyond facility improvements, Shannon has increased St. Joe’s footprint throughout Oakland County. This includes strategic investments into the Clarkston Imaging Center, Waterford Medical Complex and growing the hospital’s physician network — known as the St. Joe’s Medical Group.
During her tenure Shannon has promoted population health through innovative partnerships and improved collaboration with EMS agencies, adoption of award-winning telemedicine technologies, support for the hospital’s Faith Community Nursing Program, and funding of Mercy Support programs, which offer assistance to low-income residents with barriers to care.
Striebich is a servant leader and staunch supporter of the hospital’s 2,500 colleagues. She has helped establish the conditions for their success by developing an award-winning culture, which includes implementation of workplace safety programs, improved colleague engagement, and creation of mutually supportive relationships throughout the hospital.
Shannon has served on the MHA Legislative Policy Panel for three years, is a member of the MHA Keystone Center Board of Directors, and has served on the MHA Quality and Accountability Committee.
