An open letter from Sean Pressman, new CEO of LewisGale Hospital Pulaski

I am privileged to serve as the newest Chief Executive Officer of LewisGale Hospital Pulaski. In the first two months of my tenure, I have been so impressed by the professionalism and compassion of the exceptional team at this hospital, which has only been outshined by the warm southern hospitality I have received from this welcoming community.  My family and I look forward to becoming involved in all that Pulaski has to offer.

As the new CEO, I am committed to ensuring open accurate communication regarding the health and continued prosperity of our cherished facility.  Since its origin 102 years ago, this hospital has proudly served the community of Pulaski and our surrounding areas.  Our exceptional team of more than 250 professionals – your neighbors and family – has provided the very best care imaginable and has remained poised to meet the needs of this community when called. Let there be no doubt: we will continue to do so.

Whether through delivery of timely and state of the art emergency care within the region’s fastest ER, acute management of medical and surgical patients within an inpatient unit ranked among the Top 3% in the nation, or world-class cancer care from the region’s top oncologists, LewisGale Pulaski is here to meet the healthcare needs of this community.

As part of HCA, one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing healthcare providers, LewisGale Pulaski receives a level of support and investment that far exceeds our modest size.  Next year, we will invest millions of dollars in facility renovations and advanced equipment, meant to improve upon the care and experience for you, our patients.  We will continue to evolve and add new services, we will continue to challenge ourselves to improve, and we will continue to serve Pulaski as the community hospital we have always been.

Great things are in store for LewisGale Hospital Pulaski. I look forward to working with the hospital’s board of trustees, physicians, and associates to increase access to high quality patient care, close to home.
