Lloyd H. Dean believes that our greatness is derived from our rich diversity. He has dedicated his career to health justice and preserving and expanding health care access for all.
A nationally recognized leader for health justice in our country, Mr. Dean has helped shape public policy at the national, state and local levels with a focus on quality, health equity and advocating for the most vulnerable.
“I chose a career in health care because there can be no justice or dignity without health. Nor health without justice or dignity. Eyes can no longer be closed. Heads cannot be turned. Blame not shifted. This is the time for all people to demand justice, truth and dignity for all,” Lloyd Dean wrote after the murder of George Floyd.
As a health justice leader, Mr. Dean believes that humanity has the power to heal. Through his leadership as CEO of CommonSpirit Health, one of the nation’s largest health systems, Dean has led groundbreaking programs and partnerships that expand health justice for all. These include his nationally recognized work to advance climate action, anti-violence and human trafficking programs, and educational partnerships with Morehouse School of Medicine, Creighton University and Baylor School of Medicine to shape the future workforce by training and graduating a more diverse health care workforce.
