Jared Shelton

In this week’s special episode, Dr. Britt Berrett and graduate students from the Healthcare Leadership and Management program visit Texas Health Presbyterian in Allen, Texas. Berrett interviews Jared Shelton, who discusses leadership lessons and the changes he made when he was hired as president of the hospital. Shelton helped change his facility from a subpar hospital with unhappy physicians into a well-known healthcare provider with more satisfied employees. This podcast goes over some of the key struggles of running a hospital — in Shelton’s case, as one of the youngest hospital presidents in the country.

Shelton suggests that aspiring healthcare leaders join and become actively involved with the following organizations:

American College of Healthcare Executives

Healthcare Financial Management Association

Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society
