Kevin Brown has been named CEO of La Paz Regional Hospital by the hospital’s Board of Directors effective January 1st, 2017.
Brown has been employed with La Paz Regional Hospital (LPRH) since 2009 and has an extensive background in both Information Technology and Technical Project Management. He is a long-time Parker resident of 28 years with six years of military service. He was also last year’s recipient of the Judith Rich Healthcare Leadership Scholarship which enabled Kevin to participate in the 2016 Arizona Institute for Healthcare Leadership Program.
The new CEO is looking to expand the services offered to La Paz County residents in the coming years. “Ensuring that patients receive quality healthcare close to home is a priority of mine and the Board of Directors,” says Kevin. A new 2017-2019 Strategic Plan was formed over the last year and Kevin was instrumental in guiding La Paz Regional Hospital’s direction for the future.
When asked about the new plan, Kevin shared, “Building a new facility for our Urgent Care services, continuing to expand our veterans services and reaching out to the communities to meet their health education needs are all a part of the new Strategic Plan.”
“We are excited about the direction that Kevin is going to take the hospital,” said Board President, Cheryl Montijo. “Healthcare is changing and the hospital needs strong leadership, we believe Kevin is the right person for the job.”
