Brian Condit, M.D.Brian E. Condit, MD, FAAPMR, graduate of the UAB Master of Science in Health Administration, has been named Vice President / Chief Medical Officer for the Northeast Market of Mountain States Health Alliance. Mountain States has 14 hospitals and serves 29 counties in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina. It is that region’s largest healthcare system.

“Archimedes said if he had a long enough lever that he could move the world. Moving into leadership gives a person a greater ability to move things in a positive direction and the ability to do good for more people,” said Condit, who is 1 of only 14 executives across the U.S. on a year-long fellowship as a Baldrige Executive Fellow.

Condit, who will be based at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abbington, Virginia, will also work with medical staffs and administration at Russell County Medical Center and Smyth County Community Hospital also in Virginia.

He points out that MSHA has been on a journey with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Baldrige Program. This partnership has included two site visits and they are currently working on those results. Condit adds that they are heavily invested in following the Theda Care Center for Healthcare Value methods for Lean adoption.

“The Mountain States Health Alliance mission is ‘bringing loving care to health care’,” said Condit, who has been the medical director for the NMMC Acute Rehabilitation Services for more than ten years. “That mission makes this transition very attractive.”

For the past decade, Condit has served at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. During his tenure he and former Chief Medical Officer Mark Williams developed the NMMC Leadership Program. He says that program, which he leads, played an integral role in the North Mississippi Health System winning a 2012 Baldrige Award. The NMMC also won a Baldrige Award as a hospital in 2006.

Condit is a Fellow of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and has special training in electro-diagnostic nerve studies. He is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He begins his new position at Mountain States on Dec. 29, 2014.
