The following was released on Monday, Oct. 21, 2019:

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Oct. 21, 2019) – Brady Dubois, an experienced health care leader with a focus on exceptional patient care, quality and operational performance, becomes Lutheran Hospital's new chief executive officer on Dec. 4. 

Dubois comes to Lutheran Hospital from his position as president of Mosaic Life Care Medical Centers, a health care system based in St. Joseph, Mo. During his time at Mosaic Life Care, the organization expanded to four wholly owned hospitals, providing coverage to 21 counties in northwest Missouri, southwest Iowa, southeast Nebraska and northwest Kansas. From 2007 until he joined Mosaic Life Care in 2016, Dubois held executive leadership positions in hospitals and healthcare systems across the country. He also served as a Medical Service Corps officer for the U.S. Navy from May 2000-2007, where he oversaw several high-level initiatives within the continental United States, internationally and in deployed environments. It was during this time that his personal philosophy of “Mission First, People Always” was formed. He began his career as a recreational therapist at DeTar Health System in Victoria, Texas. 

“Brady's experience and leadership style are the perfect fit for Lutheran Hospital and I'm confident that he will work with the team to take our flagship to the next level, with a focus on quality, safety and the patient experience. We are blessed to add Brady to the senior executive leadership team,” said Mark Medley, FACHE, regional president and chief executive officer, Lutheran Health Network. 

Throughout his healthcare leadership career, Dubois has worked extensively on physician recruitment, leading quality improvement efforts and building cultures of physician and employee engagement. While serving as chief executive officer for Northern Louisiana Medical Center in Ruston, La., he developed an industrial medicine program that served more than 240 businesses. During his tenure at Mosaic Life Care, Dubois successfully maintained a CMS 5-star designation and 100 Best Hospital status, along with improvement to a 50 Best Hospitals in America as recognized by Healthgrades™. 

“I look forward to the opportunity to serve at Lutheran Hospital,” said Dubois. “It comes down to patient care – we must excel at delivering care at the bedside with a concentration on outcomes, continuous measurement and improvement.” 

Dubois is a Texas native and roots for the Houston Astros. He graduated magna cum laude from Southwest Texas State University with a bachelor's degree in Recreation Administration. He received his master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston-Victoria. 

Military life has taken him and his family to communities across the country and Dubois has been active in each one. Currently, he's active in the Missouri Hospital Association and served as District 5 president. He's also served on the Midwest Transplant Network Advisory Board and is active with Rotary in St. Joseph, Mo. Along with his wife, Amy, and three children, Dubois is active in The Bridge Community Church, leading Bible study and serving as Vice Chair for Feed the 500, an annual fundraiser that provides Christmas meals to those in need. “Amy and I are looking forward to making Fort Wayne our family's home and becoming involved in the community,” said Dubois.
