Stephen A. Wilson has been named chief operating officer for Life Care Physician Services, LLC, a subsidiary of Life Care Centers of America that places on-site physicians in skilled nursing and rehab centers.

“Steve brings a wealth of experience in the health care field, with responsibilities in hospitals from chief financial officer to chief operating officer,” said Kenneth Scott, D.O., chief medical officer for Life Care Centers of America. “He also spent several years doing clinical and non-clinical health care leadership recruiting.” 

Mr. Wilson most recently served as chief financial officer and vice president of finance for the Potomac Conference Corporation of Seventh-day Adventists. His prior assignments included similar positions at Takoma Adventist Hospital in Greeneville, Tenn.; Feather River Hospital in Paradise, Calif.; Simi Valley Adventist Hospital in Simi Valley, Calif.; and Adventist Health System/Sunbelt in Orlando, Fla.

A graduate of Pacific Union College in Angwin, Calif., Mr. Wilson earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration/accounting.

Life Care Physician Services placed its first on-site physician in 2010. It has now grown to include 80 full-time physicians placed in buildings in 15 states. 

“As Life Care Physician Services grows in its responsibilities of recruiting and managing doctors, including billing services for them, Steve’s role is critical to our success,” Mr. Scott said. “I have had the pleasure of knowing him for years, and I am well acquainted with his capabilities and his commitment to serve.”

Mr. Wilson said he was “impressed when I first heard about Life Care’s commitment to the strategy of hiring a full-time physician for each of its facilities. It is a wonderful privilege to be a part of Life Care Physician Services and Life Care Centers of America.”

Mr. Wilson and his wife, Kathy, have two daughters.
