Hospital CEO outlines plans for future success
Brian Burnside, chief executive officer of the Connally Memorial Medical Center, continues working with the Wilson Memorial Hospital District board of directors to lay a framework for the hospital’s future.
After the board’s Aug. 15 meeting, he said, “After being here a little over two months, I wanted to share what I have learned from talking to members of our medical staff, employees, volunteers, and community members. Our organization has tremendous potential for success.”
Burnside said the hospital will target four key areas:
•Providers and services
•Industry trends and health reform.
With regard to providers and services, Burnside said he continues to work to engage what he refers to as the “medical community” in the formation of a Medical Community Development Plan.
“Earlier this month, I invited area physicians to attend a lunchtime discussion about our health-care needs throughout the community,” he said. “We had 10 physicians attend, and they shared good ideas about what services their patients needed. Specifically, area physicians are focused on their patients’ wellness activities, our need to recruit additional specialists, and our overall preparations for health reform.”
Also during the meeting, the board approved the monthly and year-to-date financial and statistical report for July. Burnside said the hospital posted a $154,000 operating gain for the month.
