Jeremy Armstrong, the new administrator for Allen County Regional and Anderson County hospitals, is no stranger to small towns.

He grew up in Wetmore, a town of about 300 north of Topeka, and served as the leader of small-town hospitals in Marion and Beloit.

He knows that it takes time to get to know a community. He took over the hospitals in Iola and Garnett on Sept. 19, and has spent the past month getting to know the staff and physicians in each town.

The Iola Register talked to Armstrong about his new role, background, and what led him to Saint Luke's.

“The thing that drew me to this position and Saint Luke’s in general is their vision for the system: ‘The best place to get care. The best place to give care.’ When you’re trying to provide leadership, that boils it down into two very special sentences,” he said.
