CMMC welcomes Brian Burnside
Connally Memorial Medical Center welcomes its new CEO Brian Burnside, FACHE, M.H.S.A., M.B.A. The organization’s new leader has spent much of the week meeting with employees, management team, medical staff, and board members, as well as visiting with community leaders throughout the county.
Burnside, whose facilities have won numerous awards and distinctions, has served as CEO of two hospitals in Iowa throughout his 20-year career in health-care leadership. He holds a master’s degree in both Health Services Administration and Business Administration from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition, he distinguished as a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives and was honored by his peers in 2009 with the “Iowa Hospital Association’s Young Executive Achievement Award.”
“I’m so excited and grateful to join the team at Connally Memorial Medical Center,” Burnside said. “Connally Memorial Medical Center has tremendous, tremendous potential. Our primary goal is to make sure that our hospital is the number one choice for health care in the area.”
Burnside met with staff over a series of meetings and committed to foster open communication, gather input, and develop a positive vision for the organization’s future. His main goals, as directed by the Wilson Memorial Hospital District board of directors, include:
•Grow volume in inpatient, emergency room, surgery, and outpatient services
•Recruit and retain physicians
•Improve patient, employee, and physician satisfaction
•Develop strong relationships within the community.
“I am very impressed with our hospital board, our foundation board, our leadership and team, and medical staff,” Burnside said. “They have already done so much good here and I know that we can continue to work to make this hospital the best it’s ever been.”
In the upcoming weeks, Burnside will purchase a home in Wilson County where his wife, Natalie, two sons, and daughter will reside.
