In his role at Gordon Hospital, Hannah will oversee many of the ancillary and support departments as well as the hospital-owned physician practices.
“We are excited that Steve will be joining the Gordon Hospital family,” says Pete Weber, president and CEO of Gordon Hospital. “He is an excellent addition to our administrative team and brings great experience to his role. We look forward to introducing him and his family to our employees and to our community.”
Prior to joining Gordon Hospital, Hannah served as CEO of Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, a critical access hospital located in Dillon, Mont. While at Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, he initiated and led the analysis and subsequent design and financing phases of the replacement of the 40-year-old existing hospital to a new Greenfield site using the HUD 242 program. A modern 77,000 square foot replacement hospital is currently under construction. In addition, he was instrumental in establishing a successful provider-based clinic and physician employment model, successful physician recruitment, master facility planning, increasing quality outcomes and patient satisfaction, and creating an employee engagement process, which increased morale and lowered employee turnover.
Hannah has been an active member of the Montana Hospital Association, where he served as chair elect and secretary/treasurer. In addition he is a Rotarian, and a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
In his spare time, he enjoys travel, exercise, family time, recreation, church and being a private pilot. Hannah and his wife, Melissa, have two children, Matthew and Joseph. They are in the process of moving from Montana to Calhoun.
“We are excited about this opportunity to join Gordon Hospital and Adventist Health System,” Hannah said. “I have heard wonderful things about the community and I look forward to becoming involved professionally at Gordon Hospital and with the community.”
