DALLAS, Texas — BOKA Powell has hired two new senior-level team members, Michael Arvin as director/healthcare market leader and Brenda Hedrick as director of business development.
“We are delighted to announce the addition of two stellar individuals to our leadership team, particularly as our firm’s 40th anniversary approaches next year,” said Don Powell, principal of BOKA Powell. “Michael Arvin’s industry expertise will ensure continued growth of our healthcare practice, which has recently included work for Forest Park Medical Center, Methodist Health System, JPS Health Network and the Parkland clinic at Hatcher Station.”
With 25 years of experience leading healthcare organizations, Arvin’s strengths include strategic planning, healthcare development, program management, facility master planning and new facility development. Arvin previously held leadership roles with Alliance Strategic Health Advisors, Methodist Health System, Tenet Healthcare, HCA and US Oncology.
A frequent speaker on success in the changing healthcare landscape, Arvin has been recognized by Nightingale Publications’ Southwest Healthcare Transactions Conference as an “Executive to Watch” and is a Fellow with the Rice Building Institute at Rice University.
