Sparks Health System Appoints Dan McKay as Chief Executive Officer

Sparks Health System announced that Dan McKay has been appointed CEO of the company and Summit Medical Center. He will begin his new leadership role in August. McKay will be the fifth CEO or interim CEO in a little more than a year's time. McKay has more than 20 years of hospital management experience. He was CEO of Northwest Health System for the last five years, overseeing Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville, Northwest Medical Center in Springdale and Willow Creek Women's Hospital in Johnson.

Sparks Health System Announces Executive Changes

Sparks Health System continued its search for a new CEO after the interim candidate for the position was taken out of consideration this week. Tim Schmidt, named interim CEO in mid-March of 2014 by its parent company Community Health System, was relieved of his duty May 7, 2014. Chief Operations Officer Jeremy Drinkwitz is now interim CEO. The departure comes two months after Schmidt's predecessor at Sparks Health System CEO, Charles Stewart, resigned. Stewart was on the job for six months. In May 2013 Gary Blan, a Fort Smith native and former president and CEO of Saint Clare's Health System in New Jersey, stepped down as CEO of Sparks Health System just a little more than two months after being appointed. Blan began the Sparks CEO job on March 19, 2013. Blan succeeded Melody Trimble, a registered nurse who in January 2013 assumed the role of president of then hospital owner Health Management Associate's Southern and Western Group, a position that included oversight of Sparks, Summit and 24 other hospitals in seven states.

Sparks Health System Names Tim Schmidt as Interim CEO, Effective March 20, 2014

Sparks Health System announced that Tim Schmidt has been appointed interim CEO effective March 20. Charles Stewart, CEO of Sparks' Arkansas Market since September, resigned earlier this week. Schmidt has more than 20 years of hospital administration experience and has served as CEO of hospitals in Texas, Illinois and New Mexico.
