Robbins concludes first week as Foundation director

(Continued)

“We’ll be reaching out to longtime supporters, of course,” he said, “but I’d like to reach out to people in their 20s, 30s and 40s who are currently living in the community or who might be considering a move here. I want to know how they view the hospital and get to understand how their impressions impact their overall view of the community.”

“A hospital isn’t just about providing healthcare,” he continued. “Being such a large employer, DCMH is also an important part of the local economy. The quality of healthcare we provide and the image we convey – both can be crucial in attracting new businesses and new individuals to move to the area. Companies want to know: ‘How good is the healthcare in this area where we’re thinking about locating? What can we offer our employees?’ Individuals considering a move to Decatur County want to know: ‘How good is the healthcare here? How good are the doctors who’ll care for my kids; how good are the facilities and the equipment available to those doctors?’ There’s no question in my mind that we have top-notch doctors and facilities at DCMH, and we want to get the word out about that.”

Robbins further called DCMH “a main pillar of our community’s quality of life,” and stressed that it’s important for the hospital to remain part of the “community dynamic.”

The Foundation’s previous director, DCMH VP of Operations David Fry, did a great job of helping DCMH promote wellness projects in the community, Robbins added.

“In David, I’ve got some crater-sized shoes to fill,” he said. “But I’m excited to be part of helping continue and build on what he started.”

Fry has been no stranger as Robbins learns the ropes, and Robbins said he’s grateful to have the previous director’s guidance.

“I’ve been seeing David daily,” he said. “There’s a path worn between his office and mine.”
