“Bradley has been a very good asset to ACH in his role of director of operations over the last year and half,” said Jeff Booth, CEO of the Escambia County Healthcare Authority (ECHCA). “We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds as he leads our hospital and continues to grow health services in our community.”

Lowery will continue to work with the chief financial officer and ECHA’s shared services organizations (accounting, material management, etc.) to support the evaluation and analysis of the hospital’s operational performance, capital needs evaluation and assessment, expense management and the overall financial viability of the hospital and its departments and service lines, according to a release.

As the director of operations, Lowery has played a role in re-establishing ACH’s commitment to the Atmore community, working to enhance the healthcare provided to Escambia County and surrounding communities, as well as working with community leaders toward the opening of ACH’s new Urgent Care Clinic and future hospital, ECHA officials said in a release. He has worked closely with Interim Administrator and Director of Nursing Suzanne McGill, medical staff and other hospital/system leadership to expand the services that Atmore is able to provide.

“We are extremely grateful for the all the hard work and dedication shown over the last two years by Suzanne McGill who has served as Interim Administrator of ACH,” said Debbie Rowell, ECHCA chairwoman. “I firmly believe that we would not be in the great position we are in without Suzanne’s leadership and guidance.”

Lowery has been serving as the director of operations for ACH since December 2019. Prior, he served as the physician practice manager for two of Infirmary Health’s primary care physician practices in Bay Minette – North Baldwin Primary Plus and North Baldwin Family Medicine and Obstetrics. Prior to joining Infirmary Health, Lowery served as the physician practice manager for ACH’s three hospital-based clinics.

Lowery earned a bachelor’s degree from Auburn University and a master’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of West Florida.
