Christine M. Hale, MD, MBA
Christine joined Tenet in June 2013 as National Director Clinical Performance Excellence. In this new role, she is responsible for advancing a number of performance improvement areas in the clinical operations arena, both at the system level and within specific facilities.
Christine received a B.S. in Biological Sciences from Southern Methodist University and an M.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She completed her residency training in Pediatrics at Duke University Medical Center in 2003. Spurred by an emerging interest in systems improvement and a focus on promoting better quality, efficiency, and service in healthcare delivery, she stayed on at Duke post-residency to earn her M.B.A. with a concentration in Health Sector Management from the Fuqua School of Business.
Upon completion of her MBA in 2005, she joined McKinsey & Company as a consultant, where she remained for 7+ years. She has worked with hospitals and health systems both across the country and internationally in a variety of functional areas, including strategy, operations, and organization. She was often sought out to facilitate in situations where building physician and administration alignment was key.
In October 2015, Christine enjoyed her first ever aerial performance and has begun teaching classes as well. Her aerial performance video to “Poker Face” is attached below, as is an image with her aerial performance biography.
Christine lives in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas. She and her husband, Wes, both grew up in Dallas and are excited about their long overdue return. She is crazy about her three dogs (2 golden retrievers and lab) and enjoys exercise, spending time with family, relaxing outdoors, and following Duke Basketball.
