Remembering Myra James Bradley, SC

Myra James Bradley, SC, passed away on May 28 at Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio, after a brief illness. Sister Myra laid the groundwork for the formation of TriHealth of Cincinnati in 1994, and served as chair of the TriHealth Board until her retirement in 1997. “TriHealth’s success today is due in large part to the commitment to values that Sister Myra espoused — excellence, compassion and community service,” said John Prout, president and chief executive officer of TriHealth. Sister Myra also led Penrose—St. Francis Health Services in Colorado Springs for more than 26 years. She served as a trustee of the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Health Association and the National Council of Community Hospitals.
