Millcreek, Utah — Following an extensive national search, MountainStar Healthcare today announced that Jeremy Bradshaw of Las Vegas, Nev., has been named the new CEO of St. Mark’s Hospital – Utah’s first hospital. Bradshaw will assume the role on Oct. 12.
Bradshaw comes to St. Mark’s from 408-bed sister HCA Healthcare facility MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas, where he has been Chief Executive Officer since January 2017.
During his time at MountainView, he has helped further establish it as one of the nation’s top teaching hospitals, as recognized for two consecutive years by healthcare consumer advocacy organization The Leapfrog Group. Bradshaw has also developed a nationally recognized patient safety and quality program while in Las Vegas. In addition, the hospital's CVT program has been highly rated by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and also gained a coveted ranking by U.S. News & World Report under his leadership.
"Anytime you leave a place you’ve grown so fond of for a new opportunity, it comes with some mixed emotions. While I will sincerely miss my association with so many incredible people at MountainView Hospital, I am thrilled to be returning to my home state of Utah and joining the talented team at an institution with the history, culture, and reputation of St. Mark’s. I look forward to building on its rich history, with deep appreciation and respect for those who have built it into the hospital that it is today. This is a facility that is built on quality. And we will win, if nothing else, on quality. That is a longstanding passion of mine, so we share that in common.”
As Utah’s oldest hospital, St. Mark’s first opened its doors on April 30, 1872. Earlier this year, St. Mark’s was recognized for the seventh time as an IBM Watson Health™ 100 Top Hospital in the “Teaching Hospitals” category. It was also named an Everest Award winner, which recognizes hospitals for top rate of improvement over a five-year period, by IBM Watson Health™. The hospital was also recently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a “High Performing Hospital” for orthopedics, specifically for hip replacement.
Prior to his tenure at MountainView Hospital, he was the CEO at Desert Springs Hospital in Las Vegas, where he also previously served as COO. Bradshaw began his career with HCA as vice president – operations & cardiovascular services at HealthOne at the Medical Center of Aurora in Colorado. He has also served as director of Medical City Dallas Hospital’s transplant service line and as operations director over the transplant center at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
Bradshaw holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from Southern Utah University and a master’s of health administration from the University of Minnesota. Both natives of Beaver, Utah, he and his wife Andrea, have 5 sons.
“Over the course of his career, Jeremy has established himself as a proven and trusted healthcare executive with more than 17 years of experience and has become known in the industry as a progressive strategist who drives market growth by engaging and partnering with physicians and employees and focusing on service line development,” said MountainStar Healthcare President Greg Angle. “We’re delighted to welcome him and his family back to Utah and to St. Mark’s Hospital. I am enthusiastic and confident as to our ability to build on the hospital’s legacy, current strength, and expanded potential as a regional destination for care under Jeremy’s leadership.”
