BCHC's Executive Team

The Executive Director leads a management team that includes the Medical Director, the Director of Clinical Operations, Finance Director, Dental Director, Human Resources Director, Compliance Officer, PCMH Coordinator, and the MIS Administrator. All ancillary departments and facilities along with the Director of Nursing, and the Customer Relations Supervisor, report to the Clinical Operations Director.

The Medical Director has administrative and clinical responsibility for the medical staff. A Department Chief oversees each of the three medical departments (Pediatrics, Women’s Center, and Adult Medicine) and reports to the Medical Director. BCHC now has 7 internal medicine specialists and one Family Medicine provider. The Pediatrics Department covers both the Pedi Clinic at the Main Clinic (191 E. Price Rd.) and the Campus Care Center located at 2137 E. 22nd St. Two full-time pediatricians and two mid-level practitioners are responsible for the care of the current caseload of over 7,100 children. Two OB-Gyn physicians, along with an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, staff the Women’s Care Center.

The Dental Department, under the direction of the dental director, is able to provide preventive, restorative, and emergency care for their patients. Two dentists and a dental hygienist served 2,983 dental patients with 11,992 encounters in 2006. BCHC also serves as a rotation site for dental students from the UTHSC-SA Dental School.

The Finance Department includes Billing & Collections, the Controller’s Office, Purchasing, Housekeeping and Facility Support, and Security.
