Al Stubblefield, former president and CEO of Baptist Health Care

Al Stubblefield (Alfred G. Stubblefield) served as president and CEO (1999–2012) of Baptist Health Care (BHC) located in Pensacola, Florida.

Education[edit]

Al Stubblefield holds a Master of Science degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Alabama, and earned his bachelor's degree from Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi.

Career[edit]

Stubblefield began his career in health care administration at hospitals in Mississippi and Tennessee before joining Baptist Health Care's Baptist Hospital in 1985.

In 1995, Stubblefield initiated a cultural transformation at Baptist Health Care that turned around lagging patient and employee satisfaction scores.[1] His efforts subsequently brought about reduced staff turnover rates, increased market share and improved financial performance.[2] Baptist Health Care now is recognized nationally as a leader in patient satisfaction from changes made during Stubblefield's career.[3] Stemming from Baptist Health Care's transformation, Stubblefield also helped start the consulting group of Baptist Leadership Institute (now Baptist Leadership Group) in 2000 as a way for other health care leaders and organizations to learn about the Baptist Health Care culture and how to bring effective change to their own facilities.[2][4]

Stubblefield inaugurated the corporate training and people development tool, Baptist University, in 1997 when he was executive vice president and COO at Baptist Health Care. Baptist University is only one of several training initiatives launched under Stubblefield.[5]

Under Stubblefield's leadership, Baptist Hospital received the coveted Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2003.[6] As a well-known leader on health care issues, he is a frequent speaker at conferences throughout the country and is often quoted in national articles.[7][8] Stubblefield's message focuses on the value of culture development and employee engagement.[9] In 2005, he shared the BHC success story in his book "The Baptist Health Care Journey to Excellence; Creating a Culture that Wows." ISBN 0-471-70890-9, ISBN 978-0-471-70890-2

Stubblefield retired in June 2012 and was succeeded by Chief Operating Officer Mark Faulkner. Stubblefield continues as president emeritus of Baptist Health Care.[10]
