Schneck CEO honored by national publication

Warren Forgey, President and CEO of Schneck Medical Center, has been named one of the “60 Rural Hospital CEOs to Know” by Becker’s Hospital Review.

Hospital officials say that the list features leaders “dedicated to advancing healthcare in small towns and rural communities.” Forgey and Emmett Schuster of Gibson General Hospital in Princeton were the only CEOs named from the state of Indiana. This is Forgey’s second consecutive year to be named to the list.

Schneck officials say that those who made the list include CEOs and administrators of hospitals located outside of major metropolitan areas or healthcare hubs. The Becker’s Review editorial team selected leaders through a review process where a number of factors were considered, including awards received; local, regional, and national leadership positions held; and the organization’s performance.
