From the CEO, Luke Poore

It is with great pleasure that I would like to introduce myself as the new CEO of Kearney County Health Services. I want to thank all of you for the warm welcome in becoming part of the KCHS family! I appreciate the Board of Trustees giving me the opportunity to come and lead this organization and become a part of the wonderful community of Minden!

Fred had mentioned in his previous chronicle a little background on me professionally, however to get to know me I thought I could shed some light on some things personally. I was born and raised in Cozad, Nebraska and am the second youngest of four brothers named John, Mark, Matt, and Caleb. My parents were both Middle School teachers (English & Science) so age 11-14 definitely had its pros and cons. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, hunting, and fishing but more than that, I enjoy spending time with family. Jenny Poore, whom I met my senior year in high school, and I have been married 4 years this month. She gave birth to our first child in June 2015, a daughter named Finley Emery Poore. She has been a tremendous blessing and it is amazing as a first time parent just how much children can change your life.

Back to KCHS, it has been humbling to see firsthand these first two weeks how far KCHS has come in the last 8 years not only from a facilities standpoint with renovations, but also in terms of the solid staff that has been assembled to move KCHS into the future of a rapidly changing healthcare environment. It is my hope to build on this tremendous foundation and focus on expansion of what we have in place. Often times as you have possibly heard me in morning huddle, it is easy to focus on the challenges we face in healthcare today and look at them as overwhelming, unreasonable, and downright impossible. I like to look at the glass half-full approach and look the changes we are facing as a great opportunity to further improve and create an environment where we not only survive but truly thrive! Like I mentioned, the pieces are in place. I am anxious to finalize by the start of fiscal year on July 1, a new strategic plan bringing ideas we have for service expansion and improvement in overall healthcare to the county we serve.
