During Sellars' tenure as CEO, Premier Health has earned a reputation for taking the lead on important issues like those listed above. Premier Health has already launched aggressive programs to track and act on any instances of over-prescribing antibiotics and opioids. These efforts have been implemented at all of Premier Health's joint-venture clinics. Under Sellars' leadership, Premier Health also became the first urgent care company to obtain Urgent Care Association Accreditation for all of its centers in its home state of Louisiana and now across its network of nearly 60 health system joint-venture urgent care clinics.
Sellars credits Premier Health's success to the hard work of physician leadership, clinicians and contributions from the company's 1,100+ team members. He says, "I'm privileged to work with such a dedicated group and have the utmost respect for what they do every day, delivering urgent care that gets our patients better, faster." In the last 5 years, Premier Health has doubled in size with Steve Sellars at the helm. He has over 25 years of experience in healthcare administration with stints on both the health system and payer sides.
