HSA Alumni & DevelopmentKidada Hawkins, FACHE, alumnus of the UAB MSHA/MBA program, has been named chief executive officer of Shoals Hospital. Kidada, a member of the UAB Master of Science in Health Administration Class 41, is a Fellow with the American College of Healthcare Executives and has served and held leadership roles in every community he has lived.
His statement from Shoals Hospital's announcement says:
“What most attracted my family and me to the area was the warmth and friendliness of the people,” Mr. Hawkins said. “The openness of the community reminds us of Trussville, where we live now, and Munford, where I am from. My family and I live in Trussville now, and, in many ways, it’s similar to Florence and Muscle Shoals. Shoals Hospital is well-run, and there are opportunities to expand our capabilities. Further, I believe RegionalCare Hospital Partners has exciting plans for both ECM and Shoals hospitals, and I’m eager to be part of those plans.”
