Mr. Gibson also oversaw the creation of the first health care tech accelerator in Tennessee in partnership with Unum and CoLab, as well as developed an enterprise-wide strategic plan.


Aside from Erlanger, his diversity of experience includes managing operations through the oversight and organization of business strategy development and the growth and profitability of product lines at investor-owned hospitals and a large multistate nonprofit health system.
