Kevin Redd and Micah Ehmke recently completed the Groner Fellowship Program, an immersive, one-year training opportunity where future health care leaders learn and work under the guidance of executive-level leadership.
Kevin, a seven-year Baptist team member, began the Groner Fellowship after working in clinical integration. During the fellowship, he enjoyed learning the intricacies of hospital operations and how they fit into a large, complex health system. After the fellowship, he joined the Baptist DeSoto team as administrative director. A graduate of Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, he serves as a minister at Millington Church of Christ. He and his wife have three children.
A Waterloo, Indiana, native, Micah is one of 13 children. He earned his bachelor’s degree in management and human resource management from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and two master’s degrees from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Before beginning his fellowship, Micah worked in several hospitals, and he will transition from the fellowship into a full-time position at Baptist Carroll County.
As Kevin and Micah complete their fellowships, Caitlin Schultz begins hers. The Wisconsin native earned a bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. A collegiate athlete, Caitlin was recruited to play her final year of volleyball at the University of Memphis. While there, she applied for and accepted admission into its master’s degree program in healthcare administration. She graduated from the program in May.
Groner fellows experience broad exposure to every aspect of health care and hospital administration. They work on projects and initiatives that have a lasting impact on the Baptist Memorial Health Care system. A number of past fellows have used their experience to launch successful careers at some of the nation’s top health care systems, including Baptist.
