An Interview with Kirby Johnson, CEO of Davis County Hospital
What in your background makes you confident in your leadership and management style (competent) to be CEO of this hospital (Your story, your heart)?
With my education being geared towards healthcare administration from my Bachelors to my Master’s degree, I feel my educational framework is structured to enable me to add value in all facets of our healthcare facility and operations.
What is your clinical vision for the hospital?
My clinical vision includes a healthcare delivery system that allows for clinical excellence from entry point to exit. An organization that allows staff and providers to grow and develop into areas of interest, while providing continual learning and best practice medicine at the highest level possible.
What do you want the doctor/patient’s experience to look like at your hospital?
Our physician/patient relationship should be a joint venture to meet all goals established together by our providers and patients. Each party plays their own role in the long term health and sustainability of their health outcomes.
How do you collaborate personally with physicians?
My relationship with our physicians is based on an understanding that we both have shared goals, as well as individual goals. Some physicians are motivated by their clinical skills and personal development, while others are focused on creating a healthy work life balance and contributing to their community in a positive way. Either way, my job is to work side-by-side with them to help develop and grow their ideal practice in which they can contribute the highest level of value to our community and organization via improved health.
What can a physician expect who joins your organization?
An oncoming physician who has joined Davis County Hospital can expect support and team oriented structure. We pride ourselves on introducing and promoting our physicians and their strengths to our communities we serve. Our patients who need primary care, as well as specialized service, can find their ideal provider here. Physicians can expect to have a voice on the Medical Staff, as well as drive the development and growth of their own practice to fit their needs.
What is the one thing that distinguishes your hospital from others in your area?
Our culture. Having a positive culture that cultivates people’s strengths and talents is a way to separate oneself from the competition. We here at Davis County Hospital believe our teamwork and patient centered philosophies lead us to providing a patient experience that is unparalleled.
