Paris, TN – Henry County Medical Center is pleased to welcome John Tucker as Chief Executive Officer starting today, Monday, July 25, 2022.  Tucker was officially hired in June at the monthly Board of Trustees meeting.

John Tucker comes to HCMC with 20 years of experience in rural hospitals, the past 15 years serving in the role of CEO.  Since 2015, he has served at Mt. San Rafael Hospital (MSRH) in Trinidad, Colorado where the organization was awarded CMS 5-Star status in 2020 and 2021 and was named a “Top 100 CAH” by the Chartis Center for Rural Health in 2021.

Tucker enjoys working to create great organizational cultures and leads with a friendly, transparent and collaborative style.  Under his leadership, MSRH saw year-over-year improvements in employee engagement, significant service expansion, increased physician satisfaction and longevity, and began a master facility planning process which culminated in the completion of an expansion project that replaced all of the patient care spaces in the hospital.

Tucker has a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Harding University and a Master’s of Health Services Administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

On Tuesday, July 26, staff will have the opportunity to meet and greet with Tucker.  Additionally, in August, Tucker will host Town Hall meetings for any staff who would like to attend.  On August 17, the community will be invited to a Meet and Greet in conjunction with the Paris and Henry County Chamber of Commerce.
