Bruce Crowther Celebrates 20 Years as CEO

January marks Bruce Crowther's 20th anniversary as President and CEO of Northwest Community Healthcare. His unwavering commitment to outstanding healthcare has brought NCH a long way since January 1992, when he took the helm after serving as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for the previous two and a half years.

Bruce has been a visionary leader who always seeks the best for the community. He has been the driving force behind a number of campus improvements over the past two decades that have enabled doctors and staff to practice in a state-of-the-art environment. Bruce's leadership has helped transform NCH into a world-class medical center that redefines the meaning and scope of "community hospital."

The major enhancements during Bruce's tenure include the 83,000-square-foot Wellness Center; the 133,000-square-foot North Pavilion that can serve 250,000 patients a year; the 155,000-square-foot Busse Center for Specialty Medicine that is home to medical specialties and private physician offices; and the 284,000-square-foot South Pavilion that features a new Emergency Department, Critical Care Unit and 200 private patient rooms.

Perhaps Bruce was best described by Malcolm MacCoun, his predecessor as CEO: "He is smart, he is personable, he is honest, he thinks strategically, and people like him. He is a terrific administrator, he really is."
