A group of hospitals and health care providers in the Hudson Valley has a new CEO.
The Board of Trustees of Dutchess County-based Health Quest has appointed Luke McGuinness as president and CEO of Health Quest. McGuinness joins Health Quest effective immediately as he transitions from his Chicago-area home, and will begin working full time January 1. Health Quest officials say McGuinness has more than 35 years experience as a health system CEO. Donna McGregor and Denise George had been serving as interim co-CEOs. McGregor is executive vice president and chief operating officer of Health Quest. George is senior vice president of Clinical Services Health Quest, and President and CEO of Northern Dutchess Hospital in Rhinebeck. Health Quest also includes Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel, and Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie—plus 10 primary-care locations, specialty locations and two walk-in urgent care centers.
