CHRISTUS Spohn Health System is excited to welcome Thomas McKinney as president for both CHRISTUS Spohn Hospitals Alice and Kleberg.
As president, he will manage day-to-day operations at both facilities, and work in concert with local leadership to elevate care for South Texas families and extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
“I am very excited to join the teams in Alice and Kingsville,” McKinney said. “I look forward to working alongside our Associates and physicians to provide the highest-level of care for those we are privileged to serve.”
Thomas brings nearly 20 years of health care experience to his new role, having served in a variety of leadership positions in the CHRISTUS St. Michael ministry located in Atlanta, Texas. He will take the helm as president at both hospitals effective April 9, 2018.
CHRISTUS Spohn Health System President Justin Doss says Thomas is an experienced hospital administrator who has seen much success in elevating patient satisfaction scores at the facilities he serves.
“Thomas brings a dynamic leadership style to the Alice and Kleberg ministries which will truly elevate the level of care we will provide for the community,” Doss added.
Thomas holds a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology from the University of North Texas and holds a Masters in Healthcare Administration from the Seton Hall University of South Orange, New Jersey. He also received a Certificate of Completion in Medical Technology from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Thomas is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and is board certified by the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
Thomas, along with his wife of 20 years, Julie, and their two daughters, Katie (12) and Lily (7), love camping and fishing, and look forward to making the Coastal Bend their new home. Please join me in welcoming Thomas to our CHRISTUS Spohn family.
