Nomination submitted by Dennis Mullins, MBA, CMRP, senior vice president, supply chain operations, Indiana University, Plainfield, Ind.
I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Pam on two different occasions in the past, and I must say that she is one of the strongest women leaders I know in healthcare today. Pam has been a pillar in the healthcare supply chain arena for a number of years now. Pam led Baylor Scott & White’s supply chain from 2007 to 2016. During her tenure at Baylor Healthcare, she led the supply chain merger of Baylor Healthcare and Scott & White Health.
She also won awards such as MedAssets’ 2010 top honor, the Enterprise President’s Award, which recognizes the customer with the highest documented financial improvement. This award noted $18 million in documented supply chain savings alone within the first year of Baylor Scott & White’s spend management agreement with MedAssets. Pam is also the 2009 Recipient of The Corris Boyd Leadership and Diversity Award, which honors an individual or company that has made an outstanding contribution in fostering leadership and workplace diversity in the healthcare industry.
Regarding mentors and/or key events in her life, Pamela Bryant says: “I had a great mentor when I first got into healthcare – Nita Stith at Bon Secours – who encouraged me to explore supply chain management. Another significant mentor was Corris Boyd at Triad Hospitals, who taught me how to manage my professional relationships and how to think about supply chain issues in a different way.”
