The board of directors of the Rural Health Association of Tennessee (RHAT) recently announced the appointment Rebecca Bradley as executive director.  

Bradley was previously a partner with AES, LLC and served as vice president of Healthcare Consulting Services. She brings with her 14 years of health care and hospital association management experience. Bradley worked from 2004-2016 for the Louisiana Hospital Association to address community needs. During her tenure at the association, she also developed the Center for Rural Health Excellence through engaging rural health stakeholders statewide to leverage resources and strengthen Louisiana’s rural health safety net providers. She negotiated contracts that established a statewide rural health group purchasing network to provide lower cost alternatives to rural standalone facilities and supported lobbying efforts on issues affecting health information technology and rural hospitals at the state and federal legislature.

Bradley also successfully advocated for the enactment of legislation to provide financing mechanism to stabilize hospital share of the state’s $8 billion Medicaid budget through constitutional amendments. She assisted in directing improvements to the engagement of grassroots advocacy groups to broaden the effectiveness of healthcare advocacy and hopes to do the same for Tennessee in her new position. 

“The Rural Health Association of Tennessee is excited to work with Rebecca Bradley as our new Executive Director,” said Kathy Atwood, RHAT president. “Her excellent qualifications and varied experiences will propel our association to the next level of services. We are pleased to have her join with us in the fight for quality health care for all rural Tennesseans.”
