Ellen Grant BishopTurns Problems Into Opportunities

Ellen Grant Bishop
Demonstrating her strong belief that education is the key to growth for the underprivileged, Ellen Grant Bishop worked closely last year with Dr. Keith Weller Frome, headmaster at the Elmwood-Franklin School, to bring the College Summit concept to Buffalo. Reading through Dr. Bishop's resume, one is in awe and wonders how any one person could accomplish so much in just three decades. Coming from licensed practical nurse at the Erie County Medical Center in 1968 to Commissioner of Mental Health for the County of Erie at the present time, she has held human service positions at the Buffalo Psychiatric Center and the Buffalo General Hospital, ranging from social worker to administrator. She was the first black Civil Service Examiner for New York State, a Clinical Instructor at the UB School of Medicine, an instructor in the New York State School of Labor Relations in the Buffalo Extension Program of Cornell University and served as an assistant Professor at D'Youville College. She is a member of numerous boards including the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Conference for Community Justice, and the University at Buffalo Foundation. In 1996-1997 Dr. Bishop was president of the New York State Association of Counties. Dr. Bishop has been published several times, including a book titled "Managing in Black and White, a Guide for the Professional Woman of Color", a chapter in "Self Marketing Skills for the Administrator" and articles in professional journals. Ellen Grant Bishop's list of awards fills an entire page and includes the Social Worker of the Year Award of the New York State Chapter, National Association of Social Workers and the Nelson Mandela Community Service Award by the New York State Black Psychologists. As Commissioner of Mental Health for the County of Erie, Dr. Bishop has another long list of accomplishments, not the least of which was saving the county $1.5 million shortly after she accepted the Commissioner's position in 1988. This was done by putting transportation contracts out for bid. Additionally, she undertook the development of a joint alcohol/substance abuse plan for all multi-disciplinary agencies working in the field. In 1992, Ellen Grant Bishop helped to persuade the Erie County Legislature to establish a Mental Health Committee and she supervised the creation of an educational video titled "Mending Shattered Families." Always concerned with minorities' inaccessibility to services, Dr. Bishop expanded the County's disability service to the Hispanic and Native American communities as well as the black community. She considers herself fortunate, as an administrator, to have such an excellent and hard-working staff and she cites her boss, County Executive Dennis Gorski, as a role model. Dr. Bishop considers him to be the most disciplined leader she has ever met. In 1996, Dr. Bishop was named a Fellow in the International Women's Forum Leadership Foundation, a landmark program designed to help women expand their leadership skills. She was one of only twelve women chosen world-wide. In this program she participated in a year-long leadership training program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Ellen Grant Bishop being sworn in by Dennis Gorski, 1996. Sam Hoyt, Assemblyman, with Ellen Grant Bishop at the White House, 1996. Asked to sum up her philosophy of life in a few words, Dr. Ellen Grant Bishop said, "I just think you have to be motivated to emphasize service to others and a holistic approach to work, personal development and shared decision-making. This philosophy, called servant leadership, was first brought to her attention in the early 1970s by Robert Greenleaf, a corporate officer at AT&T. Is Western New York lucky to have Ellen Grant Bishop as one of its leading citizens? Yes indeed!

Dr. Grant Bishop, who became the Medical Center 's first woman president and CEO on February 12, 2001 , also disclosed that she will relinquish her current duties and responsibilities as of August 31, but will remain with Memorial in a consulting role until next February. "My time at Memorial was a wonderful and challenging experience, and gave me an extraordinary opportunity to grow professionally while working with some of the most dedicated people I have ever known during my health care career," Dr. Grant Bishop said."I believe we have accomplished a great deal together, and I wish the Medical Center staff, physicians and Board of Trustees every success in meeting the needs of this community. Don J. King, MMC Board of Trustees Chairman, thanked Dr. Grant Bishop for her vision, leadership and dedication, during what he described as "challenging times" in health care and for the Medical Center . "Ellen was a breath of fresh air for Memorial Medical Center and those of us who have worked closely with her the last 17 months, are grateful for all she has accomplished on behalf of the hospital and its patients," King remarked. Dr. Grant Bishop, who has more than 30 year experience in health career, began her career as an LPN at the former E. J. Myer Memorial Hospital (now Erie County Medical Center ). She worked at Buffalo General Hospital for 15 years, and was a vice president and administrator of BGH's Community Mental Health Center upon leaving in 1988 to become commissioner of Mental Health in Erie County . She served in that position until January 2000, when she created First Advantage Consulting, a health care services consulting firm. During her tenure at Memorial, Dr. Grant Bishop spent considerable time focusing on the needs of patients and staff.She was successful in helping the Medical Center obtain grants to support the creation of the new Mary C. Dyster Women's Pavilion, scheduled to open in October of this year.She also secured a $500,000 interest free loan from the Dormitory Authority of New York State as well as a $250,000 grant from the New York State Legislature. In the finance area, Dr. Grant Bishop implemented a series of cost saving measures including a successful energy audit, an expense deferral program, more favorable contracts with insurers, and took significant steps to help improve the hospital's cash flow situation. In the last year, new contracts with all of Memorial's labor unions were negotiated successfully out any work stoppages.She also strengthened the hospital's senior management team with the hiring of several key personnel. In the area of patient care, the Medical Center's patient satisfaction results were on par with the national average during its first ever participation in the Niagara Health Quality Coalition Picker Survey.The survey, conducted last Fall, measured inpatients' overall experience during their hospitalization.In a recent Department of Health survey, the hospital also received high marks for the quality of care it provides. Dr. Grant Bishop coordinated the implementation of a "bloodless" policy in conjunction with Jehovah's Witnesses so that patients of that faith do not have to receive blood transfusions during surgery or other procedures. She also re-instituted the Physician Advisory Board, and spent countless hours meeting with physicians and staff to obtain valuable input on ways in which the Medical Center can enhance its delivery of care and better meet the needs of the community.
