Aberdeen, WA – The administrative team at Grays Harbor Community Hospital has been named the “Top Leadership Team in Healthcare” for mid-sizedhospitals (100-499 beds). The distinction comes from HealthLeaders Media, the leading industry publisher of information resources for senior-level healthcare executives, reaching more than 100,000 healthcare decision-makers nationwide every month.
“Our associates have worked hard to improve our hospital, and had a great story to tell”, explains CEO John Mitchell. “As the leadership team, we simply told it.”
Grays Harbor Community Hospital was originally identified as one of 12 semi-finalists in their category; which was later narrowed down to 2 finalists. An on-site inspector, who is a former hospital system CEO, visited GHCH in May. He toured the facility, interracted with the administrative team, spoke with employees and Medical Staff, and interviewed Doug Barker, Managing Editor of the Daily World. “His goal”, shared Mitchell, ” was to validate that the challenges and results identified in our application were accurate.”
