Med­i­cal Cen­ter of South Arkansas has ap­pointed Scott M. Street as chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, ef­fec­tive Oct. 30.

Street brings more than

20 years of hos­pi­tal man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence, hav­ing pre­vi­ously held ad­min­is­tra­tive roles at hos­pi­tals in Arkansas, Ok­la­homa and Texas. Most re­cently,

Street served as CEO of Nacog­doches Me­mo­rial

Health in Nacog­doches,

Texas.

“I look for­ward to join­ing the south Arkansas com­mu­nity and to work­ing with the val­ued physi­cians, ded­i­cated em­ployee team mem­bers and vol­un­teers, and the board to serve pa­tients who en­trust their care to MCSA,” Street said. “My wife, Chris­tine, and I are both from Arkansas and al­ready feel a strong con­nec­tion to the area.”

As ad­min­is­tra­tor at NMH, a 231-bed hos­pi­tal, Street cul­ti­vated re­la­tion­ships with stake­hold­ers, in­clud­ing physi­cians, em­ploy­ees and the com­mu­nity re­sult­ing in the hos­pi­tal be­ing named the re­gion’s “Best Hos­pi­tal, Best ER and Best Women’s Cen­ter” for two con­sec­u­tive years. NMH was also voted a “Great Place to Work” un­der Street’s lead­er­ship.

“I be­lieve in a col­lab­o­ra­tive lead­er­ship style and hope to en­hance the strong re­la­tion­ships we cur­rently have in­ter­nally and ex­ter­nally,” Street said. “Our com­mu­nity will ben­e­fit from our shared pur­pose and vi­sion as we con­tinue to pro­vide car­ing, qual­ity health care.”

At NMH, Street over­saw a $40 mil­lion ex­pan­sion pro­ject; spear­headed a Lead­er­ship In­sti­tute to build lead­er­ship skills within the or­ga­ni­za­tion and ini­ti­ated plans, pro­grams and de­ci­sive gov­er­nance to el­e­vate the cul­ture and bot­tom line. The hos­pi­tal is the area’s only Level III Trauma and Level III Stroke cen­ter and also in­cludes 16 clin­ics, over 1,000 em­ploy­ees and more than 50 in­te­grated providers.

“Street’s valu­able ex­per­tise in grow­ing ser­vices, work­ing closely with physi­cians and achiev­ing high qual­ity stan­dards will ul­ti­mately ben­e­fit our pa­tients,” said Dr. Robert Tom­mey, chair­man, MCSA board of trus­tees. “On be­half of the en­tire board, we are ex­cited to be­gin work­ing with him and welcome him and his fam­ily to our com­mu­nity.”

Street has a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion from Oua­chita Bap­tist Univer­sity in Arkadel­phia and a master’s de­gree in health care ad­min­is­tra­tion from Univer­sity of Mis­souri, Columbia.

His wife, Chris­tine (Rober­son), was born at MCSA and grad­u­ated from El Do­rado High School. He is orig­i­nally from Chero­kee Village. They have four chil­dren. Daugh­ter Sa­man­tha Street Ak­ers is a CPA and lives in north­west Arkansas and son Nathan Street works at Church at Rock Creek in Lit­tle Rock. Both are mar­ried and are OBU grad­u­ates.
