When he was 3, Corey Ewing declared he wanted to be a physician. He carried that goal with him through his second year of college, when he became more interested in the business aspect of health care.
Today, he is the CEO of DeKalb Regional Medical Center.
He said what motivates him to work hard is the work ethic that was instilled in him by his dad and said he believes a person should put all of their effort into his job, whatever that job may be.
In his spare time, he likes to spend time with his wife and children. He likes jogging, playing golf and hanging with the family.
He is a member of the Kiwanis Club, the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce board. He is a 2015 graduate of Leadership DeKalb County.
He said his mother, who recently passed from brain cancer, influenced him most in his life.
“She was truly one of the bravet persons I have ever known,” Ewing said.
He said being actively involved is the only way we can hope to make a difference.
He said he hopes to help make DeKalb a better place by continuing to provide the kind of care that residents of the county deserve.
“I hope that we can continue to offer more servies here that will allow our residents to stay home to receive their health care,” Ewing said.
