The Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network (ICAHN) announced its “4 Under 40” Hospital Leadership winners including Kevin Goss, Vice President of Operations, Jersey Community Hospital, during its Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony, held November 18 at the I-Hotel and Conference Center, Champaign.
Kevin is joined by Jessica Barkley, Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Quality Officer, Carlinville Area Hospital; Katie Clark-White, Nurse Practitioner, Lawrence County Memorial Hospital; and Allison Sours, Vice President of Quality, Graham Hospital.
“Kevin has the ability to help you see the best in any given situation, and he brings the right people to the table to tackle any issue or project. He loves what he does and is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and work alongside other staff. He’s an active listener who offers thoughtful solutions,” said Bonita Gregory, Business Office/Health Information Management Director, Jersey Community Hospital. “Because of these attributes, the role of Vice President of Operations was expressly created for Kevin.”
During his first 18 months at Jersey Community Hospital, Kevin’s leadership qualities, his ability to take on the big jobs and get them completed, his tenacity, and his ability to simultaneously handle numerous important projects proved that he needed a larger platform. Kevin spearheaded the redesign of JCH’s current space to make way for a hyperbaric chamber, a wound care clinic, and a pain management clinic which facilitated a huge growth opportunity for JCH within its current footprint.
“The hyperbaric chamber and wound care clinic would not have happened on schedule without him,” said Gregory. “As VP of Operations, Kevin touches all aspects of the hospital…from process improvement and supply chain to physician recruitment, employee engagement, and simply being a sounding board for the senior staff, he does it all.”
The “4 Under 40” Hospital Leadership Award is open to new and emerging leaders aged 40 and under employed by an ICAHN member hospital or as a member of this hospital’s board for at least two years with a strong record of innovation and outstanding performance.
