Our very own Dr. Douglas Ross, Chief Medical Officer for our ministry and President of our Hot Springs hospital, was named Administrator of the Year for hospitals with more than 100 beds. The awards were presented at the opening session of the 2022 Arkansas Hospital Association Annual Meeting located at the Hot Springs Convention Center.
Dr. Ross previously served as Vice President of Medical Affairs for CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs. He played a key role in helping our ministry develop an integrated emergency medical group covering all four CHI St. Vincent hospitals in central Arkansas and Conway Regional Medical Center. He has also played an essential role in quality improvements at CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs.
Dr. Ross joined Mercy Hot Springs in 2003 as an emergency medicine physician. He has also served as chief of staff, medical director of informatics and medical director of the emergency department.
He is board certified in emergency medicine and completed his residency in emergency medicine at the University of South Carolina. He is a graduate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
Give Dr. Ross a fist bump the next time you see him to let him know how proud you are!
