Cottage Hospital named its new CEO Monday in Bob Moore, the man who has served in the role on an interim-basis since June.
Galesburg Cottage Hospital Board Chair Mark Blackburn says Moore quickly became part of the family.
The Quincy-native comes with over 30 years in healthcare and a background that includes serving as CEO of rural hospitals and large acute and tertiary health systems in Florida, Missouri, and Illinois.
Cottage in a press release says Moore is a “strong advocate for physician inclusion in hospital decision-making and strategy. ”
Moore admits the hospital has faced challenges the past year but says Cottage remains “committed to our staff, physicians and community.”
He says he “looks forward to continuing to get to know everyone in the area.”
Moore earned his masters of business administration from Northcentral University in Prescott, AZ, and masters of science management from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL. Additionally, he earned a bachelor’s degree from IL College in Jacksonville, IL and a certificate in hospital administration from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX. Bob is also a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
