2023 Ollie Jo Bozeman Excellence in Administrative Professionalism Award


Rebecca Lincer
Baylor Scott & White Health – Grapevine, Texas 


Texas Healthcare Trustees presents the Ollie Jo Bozeman Excellence in Administrative Professionalism Award to a hospital administrative professional with an exceptional record of commitment and contributions to ensure quality hospital governance.   

Rebecca Lincer serves as director of governance excellence at Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest not-for-profit health system in Texas. The system’s integrated delivery network includes Baylor Scott & White Health Plan, Baylor Scott & White Research Institute, Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance and its leading digital health platform, MyBSWHealth. Through 51 hospitals and more than 1,200 access points, including flagship academic medical centers in Dallas, Fort Worth and Temple, the system offers the full continuum of care, from primary to award-winning specialty care, as well as an array of virtual and in-home services.

In her role supporting governance excellence in corporate administration, Lincer bridges the interests of governance and management, facilitating cross-party working relationships that advance system goals. During her 16+ years of service, Lincer’s passion for high standards and keen sense of execution has left an indelible mark on the Baylor Scott & White Holdings Board.

“From the moment I joined the Board of Trustees through my entire term as chairman, Rebecca has made me a better-informed and better-equipped board member,” said Jack Martin, chairman of Baylor Scott & White Holdings Board of Trustees.

Lincer’s primary duty is to ensure that the Baylor Scott & White Holdings Board has the data it needs to effectively and efficiently execute its fiduciary responsibilities, but she also supports two additional operating boards. She has ultimate responsibility for all content distributed to the three boards as well as content shared from operating boards to the Holdings Board.

With mastery of both the details and broader concepts around governance, Lincer coordinates 12+ major meeting events each year. This requires exceptional organization and a keen understanding of the various roles and responsibilities for each board and board member.

“An innovator at heart, Rebecca strives to exemplify best practices in all she does,” said Baylor Scott & White Health CEO Peter J. McCanna, adding, “She sets high standards for herself and those around her.”

Prior to joining Baylor Scott & White, Lincer served as the executive assistant to the chief executive officer at 7-Eleven and Northrop Grumman. In both roles, she provided extensive board support. Earlier in her career, she served as the executive assistant to the executive vice president, corporate communications, at The Associates.

Lincer is recognized for her excellence in hospital administration and her governance leadership. Lincer attended Tarrant County College and is a certified diligent administrator.
