An Intevew with Dr. Mary Leahy, CEO of Bon Secours Charity Health System
“Good help to those in need.”
That is the mission of Bon Secours Charity Health System and, in turn, Suffern’s Good Samaritan Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth). That mission also encapsulates all that CEO Dr. Mary Leahy is and all that she means to Rockland.
Dr. Leahy and I recently chatted so that I could learn more about her. Even before we started talking, though, it was clear that Dr. Leahy’s dedication to care has made her a beloved part of the community. As we sat outside a coffee shop in downtown Suffern, people passing by stopped to speak with her. The mayor asked about joint events with the hospital. Another man interrupted to thank Dr. Leahy for something. Others greeted Dr. Leahy warmly, as if she were an old friend.
When we finally did have a chance to speak, I only became more impressed with her and all that she does. She is a long serving health system CEO and one of the few women in the position.
