The new president and CEO of St. John’s Hospital says he can bring all aspects of hospital operations together.
For the first time, the hospital will be run by a physician… Dr. Charles Lucore, a cardiologist who has been head of St. John’s Prairie Heart Institute since 2009. Lucore says his background in both medicine and administration will help him lead the entire hospital staff toward one primary goal -- providing quality care to all patients, regardless of their means.
Lucore says one of his early priorities will be the launch of the hospital’s expanded surgical suites, which are scheduled to open this spring. He also hopes to see significant growth in St. John’s Children’s Hospital.
