Brian Stephens, Door County Medical Center (DCMC) president and CEO, has been named to Becker’s list of 70 Critical Access Hospital CEOs to Know in 2019.
According to Becker’s website, the listed individuals lead hospitals with 25 beds or fewer that have been recognized for innovation, quality and patient safety on the local and national level. Stephens has been with DCMC since 2005 and was most recently its chief administrative officer before being promoted to CEO in January 2019.
With more than 175 physicians, DCMC offers an outpatient medical center, several satellite clinics and the new Pete and Jelaine Horton Skilled Nursing and Hospice Center, which will celebrate its grand opening with an Aug. 1 open house.
“A major part of being a successful CEO is to trust the staff and to remember that it’s not all in your hands,” said Stephens. “It’s a big responsibility, but the staff make the day-to-day decisions and do what’s best for the patients. I am honored to work with some of the most talented and compassionate health care professionals; I share this incredible recognition with them.”
