McKevett is new president of Beloit Health System
BELOIT Timothy McKevett interned at Beloit Health System as a young Beloit College student.
Twenty-eight years later, McKevett has ascended the corporate ladder to the point that he will be president of the system that employs more than 1,500 people.
Gregory Britton, the systems' current president and chief executive officer, announced this week he is promoting McKevett from senior vice president to president. Britton will remain CEO and will focus on board of trustees leadership and strengthening governance processes.
McKevett received his degree in economics and management from Beloit College and a master's degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin. In addition, he recently completed the Advanced Executive Program at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.
"Tim's promotion to president is a reflection of his progressive and effective leadership," Britton said. "He has been involved in almost all areas of operation over his career and accomplished excellent outcomes."
Britton said McKevett has been instrumental in developing the health system into a financially strong, innovative and independent health care provider.
Beloit Health System is in the process of building an $11.6 million cancer center that officials say will strengthen existing health care relationships and provide patients with better technology and greater convenience.
The new center will combine the system's cancer services under one roof, rather than the current division of radiation at the hospital and chemotherapy at Beloit Clinic. Services will include medical oncology, chemotherapy and infusion and advanced radiation therapy.
McKevett and his wife, Lisa, live in Beloit and have both been involved in the community along with their three sons.
He has served as chairman of the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce, community campaign chairman of the Stateline United Way and currently serves on the boards of the Stateline Boys and Girls Club, Rock County 5.0, Beloit Snappers and Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church.
