Brattleboro hospital hire new sports medicine director
BRATTLEBORO >> Brattleboro Memorial Hospital President and CEO, Steven R. Gordon, recently announced that Tim W. Hoskins has been hired as the new Director of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.
"Tim comes to us with impressive experience in managing orthopaedics programs, and a great understanding of the ever-evolving health care field," said Gordon. "We're excited to work with him to further develop our orthopaedic and sports medicine services here at BMH."
Hoskins received his BA in Athletic Training from Union College in Barbourville, Ky., and has an MBA with a specialization in health care management from King University in Franklin, Tenn. Most recently, he has served as Manager of Sports Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Bone and Joint Program, where he helped develop an after-hours clinic and managed the busiest orthopaedic practice within the Vanderbilt system. Prior to his tenure at Vanderbilt he managed sports medicine and physical therapy programs in Tennessee and North Carolina.
"What drew me to BMH was the community of caring people who strive to provide great care for their patients," says Hoskins. "The move for us was about quality of life and enjoying a work/life balance." Hoskins' wife Aimee is a research nurse in the area of ICU delirium and will be working at Bay State Medical Center in Massachusetts.
BMH Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine treats acute injuries and chronic conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system (i.e.: bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves). In addition to the three board certified orthopedic surgeons on staff, the practice offers also a physician assistant and certified athletic trainer.
