The guest in this episode of The Health Leader Forge is Warren West, the CEO of North Country Healthcare. North Country Healthcare is a newly founded system of four critical access hospitals in the North Country of New Hampshire. North Country Healthcare is a unique system because it does not include a larger community hospital or medical center as an anchor.

Warren started his career in healthcare at the age of sixteen when he became a housekeeper at Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Jersey, a rehabilitation hospital where he would eventually rise to vice president for administration. In this podcast they talk about Warren’s career, about his leadership philosophy, and the challenges of providing comprehensive healthcare in a rural setting in a time of massive change in the healthcare industry.
