Erlanger Health System announces Adam Campbell, PhD, as vice president of Patient Safety and Quality, and Tyler Winks, MBA, RT, ARRT, as vice president of Operations. 
 
Before joining Erlanger, Mr. Campbell spent 13 years working in various healthcare quality roles at WellCare Health Plans, Inc., and Shriners Hospitals for Children International Headquarters in Tampa, Fl. and, most recently, Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Va. In his role as the director of clinical improvement and analytics at CHKD, he helped lead quality management system implementation focusing on patient and employee safety, operational efficiency and effectiveness and quality management oversight and strategy.
He also provided program oversight for major national safety initiatives, including Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). He has also served as an examiner in the national Baldridge Performance Program. 
 
In addition to his administrative experience, Mr. Campbell also has experience as an educator. He was an assistant professor at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Va., focusing on the instruction of improvement science methods with residents and medical fellows. He continues to serve as an adjunct professor, teaching classes such as improvement science and organizational performance excellence within the University of Tennessee physician executive MBA program. 
 
“Adam is a superb patient safety and quality leader who we are excited to welcome to our team,” said Erlanger President and CEO Dr. William Jackson. “Patients are always our priority, and Adam’s expertise will help us continue to make compassionate patient care the main focus of what we do at Erlanger.”  
 
Mr. Winks has over 10 years of clinical and hospital operations leadership experience. He began his career in the medical field as an MRI technologist, and he soon moved into a leadership position, where he assumed responsibility for both administrative and clinical operations of medical imaging and other ancillary and support services. Most recently, Mr. Winks served as senior director of hospital operations and rehabilitation services at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, Va. In this executive role, Mr. Winks was responsible for the daily operations of the main campus and healthplex in Lorton, Va. In addition, he was the senior leader of the rehabilitation service line and the outpatient wound and hyperbaric program. 
 
Mr. Winks was a key leader in the hospital’s COVID-19 response and was responsible for the hospital’s incident command center. Throughout his tenure at Inova, he partnered with clinical and non-clinical leaders to raise patient satisfaction scores, improve employee engagement, implement workflow and efficiency improvements and execute hospital-wide initiatives that positively impacted the organization, officials said. 
 
“I believe Tyler’s leadership and clinical experience give him a unique perspective for the complexities of healthcare operations while remaining patient and staff focused and fiscally responsible,” said Erlanger Chief Operating Officer Robert Maloney. “We look forward to his innovative and problem-solving approach.”
