Greg Crain

Right out of college, Greg Crain started working for a church. As a student minister, Crain visited people in the hospital. "And I really liked the [hospital] environment and I already had a business degree, so it made sense to pursue a career in health care," he said. In 1995, Crain joined Baptist Health in Little Rock as an administrative resident and quickly started moving up. By 1999, Crain was vice president of Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock and Baptist Health Rehabilitation Institute. Baptist's outpatient therapy centers have twice received the prestigious Summit Award from Press Ganey, which collects patient satisfaction surveys, for having a score in the 98th percentile or higher over the past seven years. While at Baptist, Crain oversaw the building and opening of nine outpatient therapy centers. He also managed the $12 million construction project for the 36-bed critical care wing at Baptist's Little Rock hospital. Away from the hospital, Crain, 38, serves on the board of Junior Achievement of Arkansas. He also is vice president of the Arkansas Health Executives Forum. "My personal philosophy on leadership is that my work is my witness," Crain said.
