Hospital CEO Recognized Nationally
St. James Parish Hospital CEO Mary Ellen Pratt was recently named one of the nation’s “Top 50 Rural Hospital CEOs to Know” by Becker’s Hospital Review—the nation’s leading source of cutting edge business and legal information for healthcare industry leaders.
Mary Ellen was the only CEO in Louisiana to receive this prestigious recognition which is based on rural healthcare awards, rural healthcare committee and board involvement, regional and national leadership positions and organizational performance.
According to Becker’s Hospital Review, the recipients of this recognition “have demonstrated dedication to providing high-quality, accessible care to their communities and many of the executives have either received rural healthcare accolades or led their organization to a status worthy of awards and recognition.”
Last year under Mary Ellen’s leadership, St. James Parish Hospital received the iVantage Performance Leadership Award for Excellence in Patient Perspectives in addition to several awards for quality and patient satisfaction. Mary Ellen is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a member of the National Rural Health Association. She also chairs the American Hospital Association’s Section for Small or Rural Hospitals Governing Council.
