BayCare names new CEO
August 5, 2022 - Clearwater-based health care system BayCare has named Stephanie D. Conners, an experienced health care leader who began her career as a nurse, as its next CEO and President. Conners, was selected by the BayCare Board of Trustees following an extensive national search that began in February after Tommy Inzina, BayCare’s current CEO and President, announced his plans to retire, according to BayCare's announcement. Conners currently serves as the executive vice president and chief operating officer for Jefferson Health in Philadelphia. Conners will become BayCare’s leader shortly before it opens its sixteenth hospital in Wesley Chapel in 2023 and as it finalizes its decision on a new hospital for north Manatee County.
