WARREN, Ark. (11/19/21) – Bradley County Medical Center has announced that Leslie Huitt, the current Chief Financial Officer for the hospital, will be the Interim Chief Executive Officer after the resignation of Steve Henson.
Huitt, who will still conduct her regular duties as CFO in addition to serving as the interim CEO, steps in for Henson, who announced in late October he’d be resigning to take a position at a hospital in Tennessee. A native of Hermitage, Ark., Huitt has been with BCMC since May of 2020. She is a Certified Public Accountant and has nearly 20 years of accounting experience with more than eight years of time in management positions.
“What I want people to know the most about me is that our mission of ‘providing superior care to every patient every time,’ is what drew me to Bradley County Medical Center,” Huitt said. “It is a mission that I will hold near and dear. Being from this community, born right here in this hospital, I understand what BCMC means to our community. I have a heart for the people and I am excited to serve here.”
Prior to her post at BCMC, Huitt served as an auditor for the Division of Legislative Audit in Arkansas after she spent several years as the Business Manager and District Treasurer for the Hermitage School District. Huitt also spent a number of years as a teacher at Hermitage before becoming the Business Manager and District Treasurer for the school district. Additionally, Huitt had a stint as an accountant at Murphy Oil Company before the positions in the Hermitage School District.
Huitt is a 1998 graduate of Hermitage High School and graduated from the University of Arkansas-Monticello in 2002 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting.
