As founder of Stephens International Recruiting, Inc., Doug Stephens began his experience in the biomedical equipment maintenance industry in 1971.  He is now retired from the corporate environment but continues to maintain his contacts in the industry.  Doug’s niche in the market, his business and military contacts, and in-depth knowledge of the industry still provide the basis and cornerstone for the business to continue to flourish.

Doug retired in 1991 from the United States Army as a Chief Warrant Officer Four (CW4) after twenty-six years on active duty.  His last military assignment was as the Director of Biomedical Equipment Maintenance and Consultant to the Surgeon General of the United States Army Health Services Command.  During his military career, he was awarded the Legion of Merit, 3 MSMS, 4 ARCOMS, and the Combat Action Medical (USMC).  Additionally, Doug was the first Biomedical Medical Maintenance Warrant Officer to receive the Order of Military Medical Merit (OMMM) from the United States Army. 

Doug’s career continued in the civilian world as he served in several corporate and regional leadership positions.  His last position before retiring was as the Director of Biomedical Services at Methodist Healthcare Systems in San Antonio, Texas.  Over the many years of his career, Doug has served in technical and managerial positions to include Account Manager for Third-party Service Companies and OEMs, Director of Biomedical Services for large Health Care Systems and hospitals (locally and internationally), Certified Biomedical Equipment Technician, and Communications Repair Technician.

Doug has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Technical Management and an Associate of Applied Science in Xray Service Technology from Regis College and has been certified by the International Certification Commission as a Biomedical Equipment Technician (CBET #359).  His love and experience in the Biomedical Equipment Field is a natural resource for consultation on career development. Doug remains involved in associations and organizations nationwide, promoting the healthcare technology career field.
