Sutter Amador Hospital CEO recognized among top rural health care leaders
Becker’s Hospital Review has named Sutter Amador Hospital CEO Anne Platt as one of the ’60 rural hospital CEOs to know.’
Becker’s, a national publication that provides business and legal news as well as analysis about hospitals and health systems, selected leaders with a desire for excellence.
“It’s an honor to be recognized with others throughout the nation that provide quality health care to rural communities,” said Platt. “At Sutter Amador Hospital, we have the unique opportunity to provide compassionate care to our family, neighbors and friends. Our focus is on expanding services and improving the health of our region.”
The 60 CEOs on this year’s list possess extensive experience in healthcare management, demonstrating their commitment to offering high-quality, accessible care to rural populations. Under the CEOs’ leadership, many of their institutions have earned recognition as top-performing rural hospitals in the nation.
In 2016, Sutter Amador Hospital won the ‘100 Best Places to Work’ by Modern Healthcare under Platt’s leadership. This year, the hospital has opened a new Progressive Care Unit, welcomed two new surgeons and added advanced technology and monitoring systems in the hospital’s Family Birth Center.
We are currently installing a new CT scanner and have partnered with WellSpace Health to open a new community health center this summer, said Platt.
The hospital is also committed to supporting the community through partnerships with local organizations and by offering programs and services such as childbirth education courses and a Diabetes Information Fair on April 26.
