Doug Self is Chief Executive Officer of Hope Christian Health Center. He was raised in Texas, then attended the United States Naval Academy and served aboard submarines. After leaving the Navy he attended the University of Texas and earned an MBA. He’s served both as CEO and COO of several different hospitals, headed up three Rural Health Clinics, and previously served on the board of a Federally Qualified Health Center in California.
In 1998, he married his wife Shelley. Doug enjoys bicycling, both mountain and road, reading, and tutoring people in math.
From a hospital perspective, Doug has witnessed how patients’ healthcare needs go unmet, a problem that is compounded for those who are uninsured or underinsured, with most receiving inconsistent care through an Emergency Room. As he became involved with Hope through his church, Doug grew excited to see the love of Christ shared through quality healthcare, made affordable for everyone.
