Baylor Medical Center at Irving

Baylor Irving President Cindy Schamp Cindy K. Schamp assumed her role as President of Baylor Medical Center at Irving on July 7, 2008. Since joining Baylor Irving, the hospital has opened an Imaging Center in Grand Prairie, a Hyperbaric Wound Program in north Irving and a Spine Program.  The hospital received the VHA Leadership Award for Clinical Excellence in 2009 and was identified in a recent Consumer Reports study as one of only five hospitals in the DFW area to have reported 72% fewer infections than the national average.

Ms. Schamp most recently served as president and chief executive officer of Alle-Kiski Medical Center (AKMC) beginning May 2003.  She served on the Advisory Board of Penn State University – New Kensington Campus, was a board member and Finance Committee Chair of Valley Family Points YMCA, a member of Lower Burrell Rotary, and a board member of the Strongland Chamber of Commerce.

Previously Ms. Schamp served as chief operating officer and senior vice president of operations for Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho.  There, she directed all acute operations of the 344-bed facility and was a key catalyst in developing systems to handle the hospital's nearly 30% growth in inpatient volumes.

Prior to her role at Saint Alphonsus, Ms. Schamp served for over nine years at Good Samaritan Hospital in Oregon, first as its vice president for professional services and later in dual roles as hospital vice president and chief executive officer for Intercommunity Health Network, a regional joint venture health organization sponsored by three area hospitals.

Ms. Schamp earned her undergraduate degree in gerontology/business administration from the University of Oregon and her master's degree in hospital and health administration from the University of Iowa.
