CARTI, the state’s largest not-for-profit multidisciplinary cancer care provider, has named Adam Head as president and chief executive officer (CEO) following a six month national search. With almost 20 years of leadership experience, Head has served as the chief operating officer of the Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock since 2013.
“When we first started the search, we knew we needed someone who had a passion for delivering high quality patient care and who focused on clinical outcomes,” said Harry Hamlin, president of the CARTI Board of Directors and a member of the CEO Search Committee. “Adam has a proven track record at the Heart Hospital, earning accolades for his strategic direction, his leadership and his focus on patient satisfaction. We are looking forward to Adam joining our team.”
Head began his career in healthcare in 2004 as a captain in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps at Martin Army Hospital in Fort Benning, GA. He returned to Arkansas in 2008 as the assistant administrator of the Arkansas Heart Hospital. He also has served as the chief operating officer of HealthSouth Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital in Birmingham, AL and of Medical Assets Holding Co. in Little Rock.
“I have watched over the years as CARTI has grown from a radiation therapy provider to a full-service multidisciplinary cancer provider,” said Head. “I have always been impressed with the dedication and reputation of CARTI’s physicians and staff and their focus on the mission of delivering the best in cancer care. I am looking forward to being part of that mission.”
