Our Leadership Team

A Legacy of Leadership

I am honored to serve as the CEO and president of Peterson Health, continuing a strong legacy of leadership that spans 70 years. Delivering the highest standard of health care has always been Peterson Health’s goal. With 13 facilities now providing care to our community and region, the organization is expanding to meet the needs of patients spanning nine counties.

Peterson Regional Medical Center continues to serve as our anchor, supplemented by multiple clinics, physician offices, outpatient labs, and sister facilities. A highlight in 2017 was being named a Top 20 Rural Community Hospital – the only one in Texas – and again being named a Top 100 Rural Community Hospital this year for the fifth year in a row.

But Peterson is more than a Top 20 hospital. We are an independent, nonprofit health care provider serving the region since 1949. With more than 1,000 full-time employees and more than 250 medical professionals, the Peterson Health family has been the largest employer in Kerr County for seven decades. Supported by more than 100 volunteers and the strong belief and commitment of our hospital and foundation boards, Peterson Health continues to grow, thrive, and advance.

As we continually work to improve the health and wellness of our regional residents, Peterson Health is always searching for more ways to take the health of our community to new heights. Offering big-city services in a small-town setting, Peterson takes great pride in providing the most comprehensive services in the region and featuring the highest level of technology and resources to ensure our residents can keep their health care close to home.

Perseverance, dedication, and the commitment to meet our mission to provide exceptional, compassionate, patient-centered care every day serve as the foundation for our legacy and will continue to lead us toward success for many decades to come. We are honored to offer world-class care today, tomorrow, and always for patients across the Hill Country and other parts of Texas.
