ANTHC hires Gary Shaw as new Alaska Native Medical Center Hospital Administrator
The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium is proud to announce the hiring of Gary Shaw as the Alaska Native Medical Center Hospital Administrator. Shaw begins at ANMC on May 2.
Shaw comes to ANMC from Bayhealth Medical Center in Dover, Del., where he has acted as Vice President of Operations since 2006. Bayhealth is a not-for-profit hospital system with 458 physicians and 2,900 staff, and gross revenue of $900 million.
"Through the recruitment process, Gary stood out as a leader and as someone who would take ANMC to national levels of quality and customer satisfaction," said Don Kashevaroff, CEO, ANTHC. "He also impressed us as someone with genuine compassion, and as someone who truly appreciates Alaska's unique cultures and lifestyles."
Shaw has led quality and financial maximization efforts as an Administrator, CEO and COO at many hospitals in rural and urban settings. He has implemented Studer Group, Balance Scorecard, Quality of Care, and Patient Safety Measures at multiple organizations, and has focused on staff morale and teamwork.
Shaw began his health care career as a Navy Hospital Corpsman, a position that led to extensive travel and opportunities in public and private health care.
"Leadership is excited for me to be there," Shaw said, "and I'm looking forward to working with the group of world-class physicians, administrators, and volunteers I met during the interview process. With such a strong team, the sky is the limit for ANMC."
Shaw and his wife, Trisha, enjoy the outdoors and have Alaska roots. Shaw lived in Alaska from 1956-1969 when his father ran a Bush pilot service from Merrill Field. His brother Cordell is an Anchorage resident. Shaw is also an experienced pilot and aircraft owner.
Shaw received his Master of Science in Operations Management from the University of Arkansas in 1991, following his Bachelor of Science in Healthcare/Business Administration from Southern Illinois University. He is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
