The new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Floyd County Medical Center (FCMC) continues to settle into her new job.
A Texas native, Dawnette Willis and her husband moved their family to Iowa in 2013. With kids now off to college, she says the opportunity to join the hospital in Charles City came at the right time.
Willis has been the FCMC CEO for eight weeks after serving three and a half years as the Chief Ancillary and Operations Officer at Pella Regional Medical Center. She also served as Acting CEO at UnityPoint Health in Marshalltown in 2017.
She says being in the medical profession has given her a sense of purpose.
Willis says FCMC will be forward thinking to look at positive changes to how people view healthcare and resonate with the community. She adds if the hospital isn’t doing that, they’re not meeting their mission to best serve its patients
