Radiologist Stewart Worrell of Radiology Partners CHI/St. Luke’s Health Joins Board at The Rose

Houston, TX [October 10, 2018]- Stewart Worrell, body radiologist with Radiology Partners CHI/St. Luke’s Health, will bring nearly 20 years of medical experience to breast health nonprofit The Rose as its newest Board Member.

“I believe physicians should be more involved with board memberships at local healthcare organizations so that we can maintain a closer relationship to our communities and those that support them,” the Virginia native said of his first day as a Board Member at the nonprofit. “Working with The Rose has already opened my eyes to the challenges so many women face as they seek affordable, preventive health services.”

The Rose is the leading nonprofit breast health organization in Texas. The leadership of its Co-Founder and CEO, Dorothy Gibbons, and her team is one of the primary reasons Worrell committed to being part of the organization’s oversight.

Worrell moved to Houston two years ago in his work with Radiology Partners, the largest physician-led and physician-owned radiology practice in the U.S. now serving more than 630 hospitals, clinics and imaging centers nationwide. Governed locally by the radiologists, Radiology Partners now serves leading health systems in Texas such as CHI St. Luke’s Health, as well as HCA Gulf Coast, Memorial Hermann Health System, Baylor College of Medicine and Baylor, Scott & White Health.

Worrell, who was formerly an officer with the United States Navy, received a B.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University and an M.D. from Duke University School of Medicine, where he was named a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Scholar. Later, he completed a Masters in Public Health from the University of Washington School of Public Health. He did his residency and fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

“The Rose is fortunate to add a physician of Dr. Worrell’s caliber and breadth of knowledge to our Board,” said Gibbons. “He understands not only the importance of patient-focused care, but also the intricacies of addressing healthcare issues in an ever-changing medical environment.”
