Robbins named Hospital Foundation Director

Greensburg — The Hospital Foundation of Decatur County has announced the selection of Bryan Robbins as its new Director.

In his new position, Robbins will be working to support the healthcare initiatives of, and develop funding for, Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH.)     

According to Hospital Foundation Board President Cleo Duncan, “We are so pleased to have Bryan join our Hospital Foundation and share his passion for our community and ultimately our Hospital. He brings a wealth of not-for-profit experience and an appreciation for the role our Hospital plays in the vitality of our county.”  

DCMH President and CEO Linda Simmons commented, “Bryan has very capably and professionally demonstrated his ability to lead, collaborate and develop funding for unique projects. We look forward to him using those talents for the advancement of our organization.”

When asked about the new position Robbins stated, “I look forward to working with the Hospital Foundation Board and the Hospital to help promote and expand DCMH services, while solidifying its position as a building block for the community’s development.”

Robbins fills the vacancy left when David Fry was named VP of Operations for DCMH. Fry held the position since 2005, and despite the Hospital Foundation being founded in 1992, was its first Director.

Robbins is a Decatur County native and has a Bachelor’s degree from Kenyon College and a Masters from the State University of New York at Albany. He is a certified Grant Administrator for the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs and a Certified LPA Project Coordinator. Robbins currently serves as President of the Economic Development Corporation of Greensburg/Decatur County and the Historical Society of Decatur County. He is immediate past president, and serves on the board of the Arts & Cultural Council. He also serves on the board of the Decatur County Family YMCA, is a member of Rotary International and has been involved in multiple other community initiatives including the Greensburg/Decatur County Multi-use Path Committee.

He was named Business Leader of the Year in 2011 by the Greensburg-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce. Robbins, his wife Jennifer, and daughter, Dot, reside in Greensburg.
