Mark Nix, President, and CEO of Infirmary Health embrace the history of the 110-year-old institution while focusing on expanding services across the region and employing the most advanced technologies and innovative services to support the organization's medical professionals.

What do you wish someone had told you when you started your career?

You can’t do everything on your own. Surround yourself with knowledgeable people you can trust. Support and trust your leadership team to make decisions for carrying out the organization’s mission and purpose. It takes a team of dedicated and committed leaders working together for an organization of our size to be successful.

What separates a good CEO from a great one?

The willingness to allow others to freely express themselves without imposing your authority on their thoughts and ideas. When you recognize good leadership talent, respect their contribution to the success of the organization, and give them additional responsibilities and the opportunity to grow their leadership skills.

What sets your business apart?

Infirmary Health is Alabama’s largest non-governmental healthcare provider. We receive no governmental tax support or state funding. Infirmary Health is a community-owned organization and is led by a local volunteer and non-compensated Board of Directors with a mission to make the latest medical advancements and highest quality of health care available to all residents of Southwest Alabama.
