OR027 Figuring Out The Cost Equation With Rhett Stover, Regional CEO At Tandem Hospital Partners

Rhett Stover loves growing and learning. He believes unique problems require unique solutions. He enjoys breaking down big problems and leading teams through a process of discovery to identify creative and meaningful ways to address them. He seeks to listen and understand first and speak second. His business passion is healthcare. His life passion is to pursue ways to serve and lift up those that our culture has left behind - the least, the last, and the lost.

Peers experience him as a driven healthcare leader who fosters a high performance, high relationship, growth culture by creating an atmosphere of service, accountability, gratitude and professional fulfillment.

His mantra is to create success by leading and serving others. It is never about any one individual. People before things. Always.

Why healthcare? I come from a family of physicians, it’s how I was raised that pointed me towards healthcare as a career field.

Setbacks that you learned from: There was a design flaw in our first neighborhood hospital even after crossing different hands and desks for approval. Lesson learned was as collaborative partner, it is important that we always assume the best intention.


Proudest leadership moment: We handled an organization that was mismanaged, neglected and almost treated as a cast away for a number of years.  We were able to provide support and it was an incredible moment. We were able to stabilize the organization.
