Logan Cowart helps Vaughn Regional Medical Center serve Dallas County

Working at Vaughn Regional Medical Center provides a perfect opportunity for Logan Cowart to help serve residents of Dallas County.

Cowart serves as Director of Physician Services at VRMC. He oversees the day to day operations of the Hospital owned physician clinics, which includes management of physician and employee relations, the implementation of growth strategies for the clinics through different avenues and overall financial oversight in regards to the revenue cycle process of the clinics.

Cowart, 29, said he enjoys his role at the hospital.

“My favorite part of this job is the daily interaction with the public that are visiting the clinics,” Cowart said. “Knowing that being a part of the Vaughan is helping to create a great source of healthcare for our community and surrounding areas.”

A 2008 graduate of Morgan Academy, Cowart said every work day is different.

“Each work day varies, but it typically involves rounding through the clinics a few times to meet with physician’s and clinic staff, interacting with various patients to help them with any issues they may have, tracking progress of the clinics financials, and some phone calls throughout the day,” Cowart said. Cowart, who graduated from Auburn with an accountancy degree in 2012, is heavily invested in the community. He’s treasurer for the Dallas County Auburn Club, serves on the Audit Committee for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and a member of the Selma Rotary Club.“I would say my favorite part about being involved in the community is the ability to meet people that I may not have met otherwise had I not been involved in various programs,” Cowart said.

Cowart considers his parents, Phillip Cowart and Doll Searcy, playing key roles in his development into adulthood. He and his wife, Ann Cowart, are expecting a daughter in September.

“My parents have always given me great advice which allowed me to absorb the information at hand,” Cowart said. “Through them, I have grown into my own person so in one way or the other. They have impacted the way that I make most of my decisions in my life. I also have a large family on both my Mother and Father’s side who have continually been a strong support system for me through the years that allowed me to strive to be the best person I can be.”

Cowart said he’d like to see the school systems in Dallas County and city of Selma both develop programs for the youth.

“Selma’s youth is our hope for the future,” Cowart said. “Our youth need opportunities to be involved in activities that prepare them for the future. It has been said that education is workforce development and workforce development is economic development. I believe this is true. The city of Selma should work harder to provide all
