Dr. Ericka Brown has been named medical director of Ambulatory Care Services for the Harris County Hospital District. As a family practice physician, she adds great insight to the hospital district’s three-prong healthcare delivery approach that focuses on primary care, wellness and prevention.
Her duties as medical director for the Harris County Hospital District will include oversight of the hospital district’s Ambulatory Care Services comprising 17 health centers, a dental center, seven school-based clinics, 15 clinics in homeless shelters and five mobile units, as well as the specialty clinics at Ben Taub General Hospital and Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital.
“I hope to help contribute to the Harris County Hospital District’s goal of creating a medical home and culture where patients feel valued and seek the resources of the hospital district as the best place for their care and healing,” Brown says.
Brown most recently worked as a medical director for a private practice of 10 physicians in the Chicago area. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Temple University and a medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago. For the past five years, she has held membership in the HealthSpring Managed Care Network Credentialing Committee and the HealthSpring Managed Care Network Quality Improvement Physician Advisory Council.
