Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - FRONT PAGE - From Staff Re­ports

Adam Bracks, PT, MBA, has ac­cepted the po­si­tion of CEO for Siloam Springs Re­gional Hospi­tal, ef­fec­tive Nov. 26, ac­cord­ing to Den­ten Park, mar­ket chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer for North­west Health. Bracks comes to the five-hospi­tal net­work from Al­lianceHealth Semi­nole in Semi­nole, Okla., where he has served as CEO since 2016.

With more than 17 years of health­care lead­er­ship ex­pe­ri­ence, Bracks is an ac­com­plished

leader. Prior to join­ing Al­liance Health, he served as CEO of South­east HEALTH Cen­ter of Stod­dard County in Dex­ter, Mo. He also has sig­nif­i­cant clin­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence, serv­ing as Di­rec­tor of Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Ser­vices as well as oc­cu­pa­tional medicine and pri­mary care at SkyRidge Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Cleve­land, Tenn.

“The fact that Adam has a strong record of work­ing closely with all con­stituents to en­hance physi­cian, em­ployee and com­mu­nity re­la­tion­ships is im­por­tant for this po­si­tion, Siloam Springs and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties,” Park said. “He has sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence in driv­ing qual­ity re­sults and growth for nu­mer­ous ser­vices. We wel­come him to our out­stand­ing team as we seek to con­tinue to grow Siloam Springs Re­gional Hospi­tal and North­west Health and to ex­ceed ex­pec­ta­tions for all of the com­mu­ni­ties we serve.”

“We were im­pressed with Adam’s pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ences in im­prov­ing qual­ity and build­ing re­la­tion­ships,” said Ashish Mathur, M.D., vice chief of staff for SSRH. “He seemed to have a real affin­ity for Siloam Springs, and showed us how vi­tal the hospi­tal is to our suc­cess. He’s ex­cel­lent at build­ing re­la­tion­ships, which is very im­por­tant to us. And, he’s very per­son­able and out­go­ing, de­sir­ing to im­merse him­self into the com­mu­nity. These are all very im­por­tant at­tributes to us as a med­i­cal staff as well as cit­i­zens of Siloam Springs.”

He earned a bach­e­lor’s of sci­ence de­gree in phys­io­ther­apy

from Curtin Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy in Perth, Aus­tralia, and a se­nior ex­ec­u­tive mas­ter’s de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion from Univer­sity of Ten­nessee.

Bracks has been an ac­tive mem­ber in the com­mu­ni­ties he has served, pro­vid­ing lead­er­ship as a board mem­ber for the state chap­ter of Ac­count­able Care Or­ga­ni­za­tion as well as serv­ing as a mem­ber of Ro­tary

Club and the Cham­ber of Com­merce.

He and his wife Cather­ine, who moved to the United States from Aus­tralia 20 years ago, are ex­cited about mov­ing to Siloam Springs with their two sons, Luke, 15, and Ian, 12.

“We’re thrilled to be mov­ing to Siloam Springs and get­ting in­volved in this com­mu­nity,” Bracks said. “It’s a vi­brant com­mu­nity with an out­stand­ing hospi­tal.”
