Dear Friends:

Welcome to our hospital’s website.  Our mission is to provide quality healthcare with courtesy and compassion.  As a new year begins, I am reminded of the wonderful opportunity we are given to care for the sick and suffering who come to us seeking relief at our hands.  Caring for people is a special bond that all our associates share.  It is a bond so powerful that, despite our circumstances or challenges, we find the strength to make progress so that our patients and communities are well served.  Regardless of the role of anyone in our organization, our collective culture of caring is a constant inspiration to me.

2024 will undoubtedly offer challenges, just like every year does, but it will also offer some remedies, one of which is enhanced reimbursement through Medicaid Managed Care.  Our service lines will continue to expand in the areas of acute care, post-acute care, clinics, and behavioral health.  More announcements will be forthcoming as these strategies roll out.  Our quest to advance healthcare in our community in bolder and brighter ways continues, but would not be possible without the care, dedication, and commitment of our associates, volunteers, management team, providers, and Board of Trustees.

Warmest wishes for a safe and healthy 2024.  We are here for you, should you need us.

To your good health,
Jimmy Leopard, FACHE
Chief Executive Officer
