St. Anthony’s Hospital Announces Physician Leadership Promotions|
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (May 15, 2012) – St. Anthony’s Hospital has promoted two physicians in key roles. James McClintic, MD, a specialist in internal medicine at St. Anthony’s Hospital, has been named the hospital’s new chief medical officer. Teresa Bradley, MD, who specializes in emergency medicine, has been named president of St. Anthony’s Primary Care and St. Anthony’s Specialists Group.
Dr. McClintic has been a physician at St. Anthony’s for 20 years. He is a past chief of staff whose practice was part of St. Anthony’s Primary Care group. Dr. McClintic was chairman of the Quality and Patient Safety Committee of the hospital’s Board of Directors and was a key physician leader in the design and implementation of the hospital’s electronic medical record system. While in practice at St. Anthony’s Hospital, Dr. McClintic received the Allegany Franciscan Award.
After receiving a degree in math education from Purdue University, Dr. McClintic completed his residency at the University of Wisconsin. While at the University of Wisconsin, he received the Rick Wartgow Outstanding Medical Resident Award.
“Dr. McClintic brings a wealth of experience to his new role at St. Anthony’s,” said Bill Ulbricht, president of St. Anthony’s. “Before becoming a doctor, he was a high school math teacher and owned an insurance agency. He has always been in the business of caring for others. In this new role, he will be able to continue his mission and that of St. Anthony’s to provide compassionate care for our community through his work with our physicians.”
In addition to her role as president of the St. Anthony’s Primary Care and St. Anthony’s Specialists Group, Dr. Bradley also will oversee the Suncoast Medical Clinic physicians. St. Anthony’s and Suncoast entered into an affiliation last year and a new building is being constructed on the St. Anthony’s campus for Suncoast.
Dr. Bradley has served as the vice president of medical affairs of St. Anthony’s since 1992. During her tenure at St. Anthony’s, Dr. Bradley led the way in developing new initiatives such as a physician leadership council, the St. Anthony’s Primary Care Group and an inpatient diabetes education and treatment model. She has also been part of the team that brought robotic surgery and angioplasty to St. Anthony’s.
Dr. Bradley was named Business Woman of the Year in 2009 by the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce. She earned her medical degree at West Virginia University. In addition to her professional services, Dr. Bradley is a community leader active in homeless and domestic violence issues.
“With nearly 90 physicians in our ever-growing Physician Services division, it is important for St. Anthony’s to have someone overseeing them who can speak to their needs,” said Ulbricht. “Dr. Bradley has been a dynamic leader for St. Anthony’s through the years. We have looked to her leadership in many roles at the hospital and we know that she will be a driving force behind the Primary Care, Specialist and Suncoast physicians.”
