JACKSON, CA – Becker’s Hospital Review has named Sutter Amador Hospital CEO Anne Platt (pictured left) as one of the ’130 women hospital and health system leaders to know.’
Becker’s, a national publication that provides business and legal news as well as analysis about hospitals and health systems, noted that leaders on the list are executives from across the nation. From multi-state health systems to 25-bed critical access hospitals, the leaders represented wear multiple hats within their health systems to promote organizational growth as well as compassionate care.
Also included on the list is Sarah Krevans, president and CEO of Sutter Health, and Elizabeth Vilardo, M.D., CEO of Medical Foundations of Sutter Health Bay Area. The publication notes the leaders represented all face the challenges of running a healthcare organization head-on.
"It's an honor to be recognized among these leaders at Sutter Health and throughout the nation," said Platt, who was also recently elected to serve on the California Hospital Association Executive Committee as the rural healthcare center chair in 2018.
Earlier this year, Platt was recognized by Becker’s for being one of the ‘top 60 rural CEOs to know.’ In 2016, Sutter Amador Hospital won the ‘100 Best Places to Work’ by Modern Healthcare under her leadership. This year, the hospital has opened a new Progressive Care Unit, added a new 64-slice CT scanner, welcomed two new surgeons, significantly cut emergency department wait times and added telestroke and telepsychiatry services. The hospital has also installed advanced technology and lifesaving equipment in the hospital’s Family Birth Center and Emergency Department thank to generous community philanthropic support.
“We are continuously focusing on providing our patients with high quality care,” said Platt. “That includes expanding services and improving the health of our region. In 2018, we will open our new Infusion Center to provide comprehensive care and chemotherapy treatments locally.”
Anne Platt has been the CEO at Sutter Amador Hospital for more than 12 years. Prior to Sutter Health, Platt worked with Banner Health as CEO of East Morgan County Hospital where she was the recipient of the Colorado Rural Health Excellence Award. She has also worked in chief executive roles in South Dakota, Wyoming and Minnesota and is a strong advocate for rural health policy.
Ms. Platt was elected to serve on the California Hospital Association Executive Committee and Board of Trustees as the Rural Healthcare Center Chair in 2018. She is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives and served on the AHA Governing Council for Small and Rural Hospitals. Ms. Platt has served as an AHA delegate, a board member for the Colorado Hospital Association as well as the California Rural Hospital Advisory Committee. She is also a board member for the Amador County Business Council, the Hospice of Amador and Calaveras counties and the Amador Ambulatory Surgery Center.
