"His philosophy of leadership is one of collaboration and teamwork including his ability to listen well; effectively motivate and inspire others; and provide a team with thoughtful vision and strategic direction."

The Fishers facility expansion, located at 13914 Southeastern Parkway at the intersection of Olio Road, will focus on wellness – women's health and family health – for patients and families throughout Hamilton County. It will encompass 30 medical/surgical beds and 10 labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum rooms.
