Robbins concludes first week as Foundation director

GREENSBURG — On June 24, Bryan Robbins, the new director of the Hospital Foundation of Decatur County, began his first day and first full week on the job.

Robbins spoke briefly with the Daily News Friday morning and talked about his first week, his thoughts on the Foundation’s mission and his expectations moving forward.

“It’s been a hectic week,” he said. “It’s been exciting and satisfying, too. Everybody’s been unbelievably nice and welcoming and has gone out of their way to make me feel at home.”

Robbins looks forward to getting out and introducing himself to the community, but first, he’ll be in orientation for about a month.

Considering the Foundation’s mission and its close relationship with the hospital, Robbins said he’s glad for the chance to get acquainted with DCMH before moving out into the community.

“We coordinate with the hospital as much as possible,” he said. “We’re here to advance and improve the hospital’s services to the community as much as possible and to improve healthcare in Decatur County.”

He continued, “My job is to understand how the Foundation fits with the hospital’s strategy, and to work closely with DCMH in implementing that strategy. The Foundation allows DCMH to go beyond the limits of its budget and go the extra mile for the community.”

To those ends, in addition to beginning orientation, Robbins has spent the week meeting various DCMH personnel and department heads.

“DCMH is a tremendous employer for the community,” he said. “It employees roughly 500 people, and the Foundation intersects and interacts with each of their various departments. It takes time to meet everyone and understand what role the Foundation plays in each department and how that fits into DCMH’s overall strategy.”

Robbins has already begun thinking about his goals and the people he’d like to reach out to once he starts ranging into the community.
