A seasoned therapist and healthcare administrator backed by decades of industry expertise, Dr. Kelly excels as the president of McKenzie Health's Benefit Fund, through which he also serves as an adviser to the board and the chief executive officer. Previously, he leveraged his considerable large-scale administrative operations experience as the Chief Executive Officer of McKenzie County Healthcare Systems, which includes a 25-bed critical access hospital, a 16-unit assisted living facility, skilled nursing unit, rural health clinics, nursing homes, and a wellness center.

Over the years, Dr. Kelly has utilized his experience in healthcare management as the chief executive officer of Sharon Hospital, Putnam Community Medical Center, and Halstead Hospital, through which he has increased outpatient visits and total income. During the early stages of his career, he gained valuable expertise in the field through such companies as Essent, LifePoint, Doctors Regional Medical Center, Fort Madison Community Hospital, and a psychiatric hospital in Wisconsin.

An expert in his field, Dr. Kelly earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Winona State University in 1975 and a master's degree in psychology and counseling from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. Subsequently, Dr. Kelly received a Doctor of Healthcare Administration from the University of Phoenix and has become a fellow through the American College of Health Care Executives and the American College of Health Care Administrators.
