During his tenure, he coordinated many building projects, including an 110,000 sq. ft. expansion that provided the community new state-of-the-art intensive care and medical/surgical units as well as a new surgery center. He also built a new medical arts building, expanded the existing building and reshuffled offices and services so that the key patient-centered services were grouped so as to be the most convenient for patients. It was due to Bradley that Geary Community Hospital was the first in the state to do bariatric surgery and that other innovative and community-focused services began to keep patients in Junction City for care. A small sampling of the services he started include geropsychiatric care unit, hospice, a home medical equipment store, sleep studies, outpatient dialysis, chemotherapy, inpatient rehabilitation unit, occupational health clinic, and most recently, AlphaCare, a walk-in, minor emergency clinic. He is known as a well read visionary who excels at short and long term strategic planning, always mindful of why his institution is in business: to serve and keep patients. Bradley is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and has more than 45 years of experience in healthcare administration.
