New CEOs Named at Shelby Baptist and Walker Baptist Medical Centers


 
Mike Rickman

Mike Rickman has been named chief executive officer at Shelby Baptist Medical Center where he succeeds Bob Phillips, who recently returned as chief executive officer at Walker Baptist Medical Center.

"Mike and Bob are proven leaders," says Keith Parrot, President of Brookwood Baptist Health.

Rickman most recently served as regional chief development officer for the Tenet Eastern Region-Central Division. Before joining the regional leadership team, he served as chief development officer of Brookwood Medical Center. Before joining Tenet, Rickman was co-founder and chief operating officer for Practice Partners in Healthcare, a startup company focused on the management and minority ownership of Ambulatory Surgery Centers. He also previously served as senior vice president of the ambulatory surgery division of HealthSouth Corporation.

He holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Auburn University and a master's degree in business administration from the University of West Alabama. He is affiliated with the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association and the American Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers.

Bob Phillips is excited to return to Walker Baptist where he spent several years as CEO before joining Shelby Baptist. Previous to joining Walker, he was as executive director of operations for Baptist Health Centers. He began his career in healthcare in 1997 with North Mississippi Health Services in Tupelo, Mississippi after completing an administrative residency with that organization.

Phillips holds a bachelor's degree from Washington and Lee University and master's degrees in healthcare administration and business administration from UAB. He recently served as the Chairman of the Alabama Hospital Association Image Task Force and Price Transparency Task Force and he currently is a member of the Board of Directors of the Greater Shelby Chamber of Commerce.
