The hospital's new leader will also be the market president of the health care system.
Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Following a national search, LewisGale Regional Health System has found a new president, who will also lead its flagship hospital in Salem.
Jon Bartlett, a hospital administrator who has previously worked in Arizona, was named market president of the health care system and CEO of LewisGale Medical Center, the health system announced Monday.
Bartlett, who fills a vacancy created by former top executive Victor Giovanetti’s move to Nashville, Tenn., will start work Oct. 31.
“Jon has outstanding credentials as a hospital administrator and a health system leader,” Margaret Lewis and Denise King said in a joint statement. “His experience translates perfectly to LewisGale and will allow us to continue our work in providing high-value, high-quality health care during a time of great change in the industry.”
Lewis is president of HCA’s Richmond -based Capital Division and senior executive of HCA Virginia Health System. King is chairwoman of LewisGale Medical Center’s board of trustees.
Bartlett was not available for comment Monday.
He joins LewisGale after serving as president of Abrazo Health Care in Phoenix, Ariz., a six-hospital, 1,029-bed network that is part of Vanguard Health Systems.
Prior to that, he was chief executive officer of Arrowhead Hospital, a 220-bed facility in Glendale, Ariz., from 2001 to 2011.
He also has experience working in three HCA facilities: as chief operating officer at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center in Denver ; as chief executive and chief financial officer at Columbine Psychiatric Center, in Highlands Ranch, Colo.; and as controller at Aurora Regional Medical Center in Aurora, Colo., according to a news release.
“I’m delighted to be rejoining HCA and excited about coming to the Roanoke Valley,” Bartlett said in a statement released by LewisGale. “The LewisGale system has a well-deserved reputation for providing outstanding care, and I’m looking forward to playing an important role not just in leading our health system, but also in being an integral part of the community.”
Bartlett earned both a master’s and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He and wife Jeri will be relocating soon to the Roanoke Valley.
He will be taking the helm of a health care system that includes four hospitals — in Alleghany County, Blacksburg, Pulaski and Salem — more than 30 other patient care facilities and affiliations with nearly 700 physicians.
