Florida Academy of Family Physicians Spotlights Two FHCP Leaders

In the healthcare industry, where innovation and dedication are key to providing excellent patient care, it's important to recognize leaders making significant impacts. The Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP) recently highlighted Florida Health Care Plans (FHCP)’s very own Dr. Krista Brinkerhoff and Dr. Stephen Keen.

A compassionate physician, Dr. Brinkerhoff joined FHCP in 2020, bringing a deep commitment to patient-centered care. Transitioning from a resident clinic to a long-established patient panel, Dr. Brinkerhoff quickly realized the importance of personal connections in healing. Inspired by mentor Dr. Van Durme's wisdom, "The patient does not care how much you know until they know how much you care." Dr. Brinkerhoff prioritizes building rapport with patients, finding it as crucial as understanding their diagnoses. Beyond outpatient Family Medicine, Dr. Brinkerhoff provides vital Addiction Medicine treatment, advocating for compassionate care and educating medical students on substance use disorders. Despite the demanding schedule, Dr. Brinkerhoff finds fulfillment in contributing to medicine and cherishes personal interests like gardening, cooking, and exploring National Parks, finding solace and connection in nature.

As President and CEO of FHCP, Dr. Keen leads a healthcare organization deeply committed to improving the lives of its members across North Central Florida. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, FHCP stands out with its unique model that prioritizes patient-centered care and sustainability in the healthcare landscape.

Recognizing the importance of physician leadership in driving positive change, Dr. Keen emphasizes the role of family physicians as advocates for value-based care. As CEO, he channels his passion for patient advocacy into sustaining a health plan that prioritizes member experience, physician quality, and market affordability. Dr. Keen's vision for FHCP centers on delivering superior care within the communities it serves, ensuring access to quality healthcare for all members.

Through their innovative approaches and commitment to excellence, Dr. Brinkerhoff and Dr. Keen have contributed to the advancement of family medicine and the overall healthcare landscape in Florida.
