Abraham Barry Smith

Dr Smith is the Medical Services Manager at Karl Bremer Hospital. Along with service delivery goals, he has made team wellness a priority. He does not expect anything from his team unless he is prepared to action it himself. He leads with inspiration and encouragement; reminding the team of their purpose. He guided the Karl Bremer Hospital COVID-19 response with replicable guidelines and assisted the establishment of field hospitals in the province. He leads outward through substructure teams to establish COVID pathways that address patient needs. Dr Smith took on a new clinical manager role at a large urban hospital, while at the same time acted in the role of Chief Executive Officer. He also managed the Brackengate field hospital. His selfless attitude and dedication to the public is a stellar example of what happens when humility and skill collide.
