Establishes Jason Proctor as Key Leader in

East Texas Health Care


AUSTIN (3/1/2016) – The Texas Hospital Association’s Leadership Fellows Program Class of 2016 includes a notable local health care leader.


Jason Proctor, Vice President of Operations at Mother Frances Hospital Tyler, was one of 22 hospital leaders selected for the yearlong program designed to educate hospital executives on a variety of complex public health and policy issues. The program brings together up-and-coming health care leaders for a focused study in becoming effective advocates for Texas hospitals and the communities they serve.


“We are honored to meet the health care needs of East Texas, and today we are proud to have Jason Proctor representing Mother Frances in THA’s Leadership Fellows Program to ensure we are doing even more to embrace and implement the latest public health policies and practices,” said John McGreevy, Chief Executive Officer, Mother Frances Hospital and the Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital.


Now in its third year, the program grows leaders and equips them to lead community health policy discussions, implement the latest trends in health care strategy, and create an environment that enables the best possible patient care outcomes. The curriculum includes presentations from a diverse group of health care experts with varying perspectives as well as open, active dialogue and debate.


“We are in an age of health care transformation, and as hospital leaders we have to do what we can to ensure we are at the leading edge to bring the most innovative and impactful solutions to patients,” said Ted Shaw, THA president/CEO. “The THA Leadership Fellows Program is a chance for us to identify developing thought leaders in their respective communities and arm them with even more skills and expertise.”
