Patrick Brown named Young Healthcare Executive of Year

DALLAS — The Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council has named Patrick Brown, FACHE, vice president of operations at Methodist Charlton Medical Center, as its Young Healthcare Executive of the Year for 2022. Created in 2005, the award honors young professionals who display the impressive abilities of future North Texas leaders. Nominees must be 40 or younger and employed by a DFWHC-member hospital.

Brown, 39, moved to Methodist Charlton this summer to assume the same role he held for three years at Methodist Mansfield, where he oversaw 17 departments and left an impact on every service line he supervised, from extending cardiology services into underserved rural areas to transforming the hospital’s vascular surgery and urology service lines.

At Methodist Charlton, a 314-bed hospital in South Dallas, Brown has embraced his new role without hesitation, eager to serve a community in need that Methodist Health System has held dear since its founding nearly a century ago. Brown has quickly forged relationships with community leaders throughout southern Dallas County to better understand their needs and spread the word about Methodist Health System’s investment in exceptional healthcare south of the Trinity River. That includes a $71 million project to expand Methodist Charlton’s emergency department, renovations to the hospital’s labor and delivery unit, interventional radiology suite, and the cutting-edge Cancer Center.

Brown has committed himself to diversity and inclusion by serving as president of the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the National Association of Health Service Executives. He also serves on the board of the North Texas chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and further contributes to diversity by mentoring the healthcare leaders of the future.

Brown has more than 15 years of experience in healthcare leadership, serving in operations, human resources, supply chain, strategic planning, and business development roles across a number of hospitals in Arizona, Georgia, and Texas. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Bethune-Cookman University and a Master of Business Administration from Mercer University.
