Jennersville Regional Hospital appoints new leadership

08/15/2013 11:45AM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print


Mat Gooch has been named the new CEO of Jennersville Regional Hospital.


Mathew Gooch has been named the new chief executive officer of Jennersville Regional Hospital. He replaces former CEO Chuck Davis, who retired on July 31.

For the past three years, Gooch served as CEO of Jennersville Regional Hospital. In that role, he oversaw the development and implementation of new services and construction projects. His work was integral to the completion of a $15 million project that added a new 20-bed telemetry unit and converted patient rooms to all private rooms. He helped establish an agreement with Jefferson University Hospital that assists with the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients in the Jennersville Emergency Department and oversaw development of a comprehensive wound care center that has led to increased patient and physician satisfaction.

"I'm honored to continue working with the dedicated professionals at Jennersville Regional Hospital," Gooch said. "Because of their work, patients have come to expect quality, personalized care with every visit to this hospital."

Gooch brings more than 10 years of experience in hospital settings to this new role.  He joined Jennersville Regional Hospital from Palmyra Medical Center in Albany, Ga., where he served as COO. Since moving to West Grove, he has become involved in the community, including the Jennersville YMCA and, more recently, the West Grove-Avondale Rotary Club.

The hospital also announced that Patrick Tuer has been promoted to assistant administrator. He previously served as administrative specialist.  Since joining the hospital in 2005 as an information technology specialist, he steadily increased his responsibilities and was accepted into a prestigious leadership development program in 2011. In his new role, he will continue a number of initiatives already under way, including roll out of a robotic surgical tool that will assist with such procedures as partial knee replacements.

"Jennersville Regional Hospital is fortunate to have such talent develop and thrive within our own facility," said David Fitzgerald, chairman of the Advisory Board of Trustees of Jennersville Regional Hospital.  "We look forward to working with both gentlemen in their new roles."

On behalf of the board, Fitzgerald also thanked former CEO Chuck Davis for his contributions to the hospital.
