Angel Medical Center (AMC) formally welcomed its new CEO Jim Bross at a reception held on the lawn at Snow Hill Inn Saturday. By invitation only, guests were treated to a prime rib dinner prepared by the catering arm of AMC.
Jan Unger, chairman of the board of trustees, introduced Bross’ daughter Angie who spoke of her dad’s commitment to God, family and friends, and his unswerving allegiance to the Clemson Tigers. “He is the hardest worker I know,” she said. Bross began work at AMC more than 10 weeks ago and she said he was appreciative of the outpouring of kindness and community support he has seen since he has been here. Bross began his remarks thanking his life partner, Angie, for her love, support and prayers. The couple has been married for 27 years. “She is the one who completes me,” he said of his wife.
Bross expressed appreciation to the board of trustees for the smooth onboarding as he took the helm of CEO. He thanked interim Marty Wadewitz for his dedication and support during the transition period.
Bross stressed his commitment to continue to provide quality health care with an excellent patient outcome, and looks forward to working with Mission Health Systems. He reiterated Mission’s commitment to “zero harm” and is looking forward to meeting and exceeding expectations. One of his goals is to recruit and retain excellent doctors to continue AMC’s commitment to quality.
Bross has more than 28 years of experience in hospital, health plan and healthcare consulting. He comes to Angel Medical Center from Applied Revenue Analytics in Temple, Texas, where he served as senior director of client services. Prior to that position, he served as senior vice president, COO and vice president of operations of Rutherford Hospital in Rutherfordton, N.C.
