Corydon-based Harrison County Hospital has appointed a new leader after longtime Chief Executive Officer Steve Taylor announced he will retire in January. The board of trustees has selected Lisa Clunie as CEO.
Clunie joined the hospital’s staff in 2004 and has served in various roles, including chief of the medical staff, chief of the emergency department and chief of medicine. She currently chairs the Infection Control Committee and leads implementation of the hospitals COVID-19 protocols.
“As a born and raised resident of Harrison County, serving this community is important to me and my focus and goal will be to continue the upward trajectory for Harrison County Hospital. I’ve been fortunate to work alongside Steve for many years and look forward to building upon all that he’s accomplished,” said Dr. Clunie.
Taylor was appointed CEO in 1989 and has seen more than $110 million in capital improvements, including a $60 million hospital campus that opened in 2008. The relocated hospital campus includes a multi-story medical office building and EMS facility.
“Relocating our hospital was a landmark event for us, as it created the essential location, facilities, and capabilities to provide the services our community needs and expects. Through the years, it has been a high privilege to work with our outstanding medical, management, and hospital staff, as well as various dedicated trustees”, Taylor said.
Hospital board chair Donn Blank says Taylor was devoted to growing the hospital.
“We salute all of his contributions to this community and at the same time celebrate Dr. Clunie who we know will be a great leader to build on Steve’s legacy and continue to take this hospital forward,” said Blank.
