After 47 years in the medical field, Neeysa Biddle recently retired as Executive Vice President and COO for St. Vincent’s Health System. She is most proud of the opportunity to mentor and train young executives during the last 25 years of her career. As an adjunct professor in the School of Health Professions at UAB, she was a preceptor to graduating seniors in the Masters in Health Administration program. Biddle is currently responsible for designing and implementing Ascension Health’s national Leadership Academy, scheduled to launch in May 2012
The most valuable lesson Biddle learned from Girl Scouting was when she learned the song, “Make New Friends, But Keep the Old.” Little did she know when she was dutifully singing it every week what its strong message would come to mean. Biddle is a former board member of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama.
Biddle will be honored at the 2012 East-Central Women of Distinction on March 9. For more information, visit girlscoutsnca.org/eastcentralwod.
