Lucore says the hospital has the only Children’s Hospital in the region and has a nationally recognized cardiology program.  He replaces former CEO Bob Ritz who resigned in May.

Lucore has been with the hospital system in 1992 to include a tenure as Executive Director of the Prairie Heart Institute.  By training, Lucore is a cardiologist.
