Thomas has more than 8 years of healthcare leadership experience. Prior to his work at NOMC, Thomas was Assistant Administrator with Sparks Health System (SHH) in Fort Smith, AR. At SHH he was responsible for opening the orthopedic and cardiology service lines. Thomas was also Director of Facility Operations and Safety Officer at Cedar Park Regional Medical Center in Cedar Park, TX. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Alabama and a Masters of Business Administration from Troy University.

“I’m impressed by the staff’s positive attitude and dedication. We will build on the strong foundation that currently exists and continue the high level of quality care while expanding services to fit the needs of the community” said Thomas.
