January 16, 2019: Bay Area Hospital is proud to welcome new President and Chief Executive Officer, Brian Moore. Moore was selected by the Bay Area Hospital Board of Directors after a nationwide search and assumed leadership of the hospital on January 2. He comes to the South Coast with more than 18 years of hospital leadership experience, most recently serving as CEO at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo, Colorado.
Since moving to the area, Moore has been hard at work getting acquainted with community leaders and working with the hospital board to determine goals for the organization.
“In these first 90 days, I’m really doing a lot of listening and getting the lay of the land,” Moore says. “There are so many great things going on here at Bay Area Hospital. It’s an exciting time to be joining the organization.”
Throughout Moore’s dynamic career, he has successfully positioned hospitals for growth and expansion, led organizations to improved hospital operations, and delivered strong, sustainable gains in performance and productivity. Revered as his proudest accomplishment, Moore played a leading role in starting several new hospital campuses in an underserved area of Colorado early in his career.
Moore believes building community partnerships is an important part of running a successful organization, and he looks forward to establishing those relationships on the Oregon Coast.
“Being involved with fellow business leaders and the broader civic community for me has been something that I’ve always enjoyed and been very active and visible in,” Moore says.
Moore succeeds former CEO, Paul Janke, who retired January 4 after a decade of leadership at Bay Area Hospital. For more information, contact Barbara Bauder at (541)269-8543.
