MountainView Hospital announces that Julie Taylor, RN, MBA, MSN, FACHE, will lead the hospital as its new chief executive officer.
Taylor is currently CEO at HCA’s Alaska Regional Hospital, a position she has held since December 2013.
A 35-year health care veteran and nursing leader with more than 20 years in executive leadership roles, Taylor brings a wealth of knowledge and a variety of experience to MountainView Hospital.
Under Taylor’s leadership, Alaska Regional Hospital enjoyed impressive growth and strengthened its foothold as a highly regarded health care provider across the entire state of Alaska. From Joint Commission designations as Centers of Excellence for Joint, Spine and Stroke, national Certifications in Chest Pain, Atrial Fibrillation and Congestive Heart Failure, 5-Star CMS ratings and Surgical Review Corporations deemed Robotics Center of Excellence program, Alaska Regional Hospital raised its profile and expanded its service line offerings, inspiring confidence in local medical expertise and reducing the need for the community to leave the state for care.
Taylor’s relentless focus on culture and the importance of ensuring a supportive leadership structure contributed to the gains made, including the improvement of employee and physician engagement, as well as patient experience over the course of her tenure.
Before arriving at Alaska Regional, Taylor was the Chief Executive Officer of HCA’s West Valley Medical Center in Idaho. Prior to that, Taylor was the Chief Operating Officer at HCA’s The Medical Center of Aurora in Denver, Colorado.
