• A Message From our CEO


  • Morre Dean, FACHE President & CEO, Parker Adventist Hospital Dear Friends, Family, and Community Members,

    It's hard to believe that just 10 years ago, Parker Adventist Hospital opened its doors in response to a community call for a full-service hospital. We came to this community with a clear mission - to care for the ill and injured in a manner modeled for us by Jesus, who not only healed but held people close and loved them without judgment.

    As the initial associates and physicians quietly carried out this work, something remarkable happened. We became part of the fabric of this community and, with our neighbors, we celebrated the beginning of new lives, we prayed together over hurt lives, and we joined in sorrow over lives passed. Gradually, new associates and new physicians - many who could choose to work in major medical centers anywhere in the country - chose to come to Parker Adventist Hospital. With them came new services that our community needed - services that previously would have required patients to leave this community. Today, we are proud to be able to offer our community a wide range of health care services, including very complex specialties such as neurosurgery, spine surgery, joint replacement, stroke care, bariatric surgery, and now comprehensive cancer care.

    While we are proud of receiving many accolades for various programs, patient safety, and quality care, we are equally proud of the way we provide that care. For, like Jesus, we know that healing comes in many ways - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. And that is why, with the support of the Parker Hospital Foundation and your donations, we are able to offer programs such as bedside musicians, massages, counseling, and support groups that care for the whole person. Like our community, we are young, but we have strong roots that guide us.


    We look forward to the next 10, 20, and 100 years as we grow together with you.

    May God Bless You,

    Morre Dean, FACHE
    President & CEO
