2 min read

J. Larry Shackelford will assume the role of CEO at Washington Regional Medical System in Fayetteville on Sept. 1. This follows William L. Bradley’s announcement last year that he plans to retire this November as CEO of the medical system.

As Shackelford begins his new role, Bradley will assume the title of CEO emeritus until his retirement in mid-November and will assist in ensuring a smooth transition.

“Our board is confident Larry Shackelford is the CEO to guide Washington Regional to successfully adapt in an ever-changing healthcare environment while remaining faithful to our goals and mission,” Greg Lee, chair of the Washington Regional Board of Directors, said in a press release. “We look forward in the coming months to celebrating Washington Regional’s many accomplishments under Bill’s leadership and welcoming Larry in his new role.”

Shackelford has served Washington Regional Medical System as senior vice president of strategy and outreach services since June 2010. Before that he served as the CEO of Medical Associates of Northwest Arkansas in Fayetteville, a multispecialty physician group practice, since its inception in 1998.

Shackelford graduated with a Bachelor of Science in business administration from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
