Message from the CEO

Thank you for your interest in Avita Health System (Avita). I have been privileged to serve as Avita’s President and CEO since 2009. The creation of Avita Health System occurred when Bucyrus Community Hospital and Galion Community Hospital joined in 2011. The hard work and dedication given by the Board of Directors, Medical Staff, and employees have led to Avita’s ability to enhance services to the communities we serve. Avita has grown from approximately 450 employees in 2009 to over 1,800 employees who provide patient care in Crawford, Richland, and Marion counties. Avita is dedicated to providing an extraordinary patient experience and we are proud to have patient satisfaction scores ranking above most regional and national health systems, as measured by the independent patient satisfaction survey process (HCAPS) which is governed by the Federal CMS program. As a not-for-profit health system, we are blessed to be able to give back to the community by providing over twice the amount of uncompensated care to patients needing financial assistance when compared to other national and state health systems. Avita is one of the few community health systems in Ohio that has not consolidated with a larger metropolitan health system. This means that Avita’s board members live locally, where health services are provided and utilized. The Avita Board realized how difficult it was to maintain local board governance in an era of mergers and acquisitions, which is why they decided to enhance their governance ability by using a comprehensive policy governance system. The policy governance system guides the board on how to effectively govern as a group in fulfilling their leadership role. Avita truly has a corporate culture of collaboration, where the Board, Medical Staff and Employees work together to maximize Avita’s mission of improving the health and well-being of those we serve. Please explore the web site to find out more about the services Avita provides.
