I look forward to working with our team to push the boundaries toward even higher levels of quality and safety for our patients,” says Dr. Smith. “I am also excited by the collaborative opportunities we will continue to have to promote cooperative interaction between the health system and physicians across the region. Because I grew up in Jackson, and went to high school here, it feels like both a personal and professional responsibility to do my best for our community. I want to leave a legacy of excellence.”

 

As CMO, Dr. Smith will be responsible for coordinating various medical groups, serving as the senior physician leader for the executive council, and planning for clinical expansion.
