During her 12-year career at One Medical, Amy Finney held many leadership positions. But her most consequential role came in February 2020, when she led One Medical’s emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Those first few weeks in February and early March, a small group of us worked around the clock researching and scripting guidelines for our clinical and administrative staff,” says Finney. “We were on call 24 hours.”
Finney and her incident response team created up-to-date clinical logistics and COVID-19 testing protocols to meet the needs and specific guidelines for One Medical’s 200+ clinics nationwide.
Finney was later promoted to vice president of operations and named one of San Francisco Business Times’ 2022 Women of Influence for her work—though leading a national emergency response was a departure from her original career goals.
Inspired by her sister’s complex health journey, Finney had planned to attend medical school. But with every new opportunity, her work at One Medical became more meaningful. In 2017, Finney enrolled in Haas’ evening and weekend program, which ultimately put her on the fast track to lead One Medical’s operations. Finney has since moved on and is now COO of Bicycle Health, a telehealth company that provides online treatment to people for opioid use disorder.
“I’m very grateful that I had Haas to help me expand my perspective and confidence,” says Finney. “I hope that other women in their careers can make the same steps that I feel I’ve been able to make.”
