Top 100 Women of Impact: Rebekah S. Fincher

Rebekah S. Fincher

Chief Administrative Officer, Conway Regional

About me: I grew up in a small town in north central Arkansas. My husband John and I have made our home in Conway, Arkansas. We have two sons: Ethan Parker, who will be 7 in November, and Bennett Anderson, who turns 2 in August. 

I have worked at Conway Regional for 13 years and have responsibility for growth, business development and strategy initiatives for the organization. I work with our physician enterprise team, which employs over 100 providers, along with our graduate medical education program and marketing teams. 

Personally, I enjoy all water sports, a good sweat session at the gym, running, cycling, traveling, a really good meal, reading, baking and being a boy mom.

Best Career Advice: Find a great mentor, seek to understand and be solution-oriented. An extraordinary work ethic, a positive attitude and outlook and being a lifelong learner is a place that isn’t crowded.

Lesson Learned the Hard Way: Never use more power than necessary.

Proudest Moment of Impact: Growing up in a small town, I have experienced the challenges of access to health care. Each day, I have the opportunity to imagine and create better access to health care. Upon implementing our graduate medical education program and creating additional residency slots for medical students here in Arkansas, seeing the impact this initiative has for central Arkansas and the River Valley is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling for me both personally and professionally.

What Keeps Me Motivated: I thrive on a challenge and the opportunity to solve problems, especially complex problems that require creative solutions. Health care is extraordinarily complex. Having the opportunity to wake up each day and tackle new issues or problems while knowing I am working to help others is incredibly rewarding to me.
