LewisGale Regional Health System names new president, CEO

Alan Fabian has been with LewisGale Hospital Montgomery since 2013

SALEM, Va. – HCA Virginia has named Alan Fabian to lead the LewisGale Regional Health System as market president and LewisGale Medical Center’s chief executive officer.

Fabian has been with HCA Healthcare since 1995, serving in senior leadership roles in several Louisiana hospitals and since 2013 at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery.

“We are pleased to tap Alan into this market-wide president position,” said Tim McManus, HCA Capital Division president. “Alan has been very successful building strong hospital cultures which have driven exceptional quality, patient experience scores and engaged hospital teams. He has also developed strong community relationships by participating on the boards of directors for many non-profit organizations, including playing a strategic role with the New River Valley Health task force.”

Durian Fabian’s tenure at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, the hospital significantly grew by developing service lines to meet community needs and recruiting physicians to the New River Valley.

The hospital also completed several large capital projects to better serve its patients, including, most recently, a $16 million surgical services renovation that is expected to be completed in 2023.

With 15 years of experience managing hospitals, Fabian says he wants to create and maintain a healthy work culture by engaging employees and filling vacancies that many hospitals are struggling with now.

“Your good colleagues are the most important thing we have here. The good physicians are the most important thing we have here. That way we can take care of the patients we have today,” said Fabian. “Then we engage them to recruit their friends. Recruit great workers to a great work environment.”

The four-hospital LewisGale Regional Health System provides care throughout southwest Virginia, including LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, LewisGale Hospital Pulaski, LewisGale Hospital Alleghany, and LewisGale Medical Center.
