Our leadership

Sky Lakes Medical Center is an internationally accredited, community-owned, acute care hospital. That means the people in the communities we serve own us.

A 10-member board of directors is our direct connection to our community. Those volunteers set policy direction that is put into action through our senior management team, our president/chief executive officer and four vice presidents.
