CoxHealth is pleased to announce that two employees have recently accepted new leadership roles within Cox Medical Group.
Brock Shamel has been named administrative director of regional services while Julie Kiser has been promoted to director of clinics.
In his new role, Shamel will be responsible for the overall operations of CoxHealth regional services’ 75-plus ambulatory and hospital-based practices, coordinating and integrating services with partner members of Cox Medical Group. Shamel has been with the organization since 2010, when he started at Skaggs Regional Medical Center as an intern. Over the next six years, Shamel took on roles of increasing responsibility, ultimately moving into the role of director of Cox Medical Center Branson clinics in 2014.
Shamel completed his undergraduate degree at College of the Ozarks and received a master’s degree in health administration from Missouri State University.
“Brock is an inspirational leader, combining great vision for the big picture with a keen connection to the details of clinic operations,” says Max Buetow, vice president, regional services and neurosciences. “He brings his energy, integrity and compassion to work with him every day.”
Kiser joined CoxHealth in 1987 as a supervisor at CoxHealth’s Family Medicine Residency. Since 2005, Kiser has been the clinic manager at CoxHealth Center Steeplechase, where she worked alongside physicians and staff to build one of the region’s top primary care practices. In her new role as director of clinics, Kiser will be responsible for guiding and supporting a variety of physician practices throughout CoxHealth’s service areas. Kiser completed a bachelor’s degree in management from Evangel University.
“Julie brings a wealth of experience to her new role as director of clinics,” Buetow says. “Julie has an excellent leadership track record at CoxHealth, working alongside fellow leaders, physicians, and staff to develop several of CoxHealth’s most respected programs.”
