A Letter From Our President & CEO, Dean Teague
Dear Calvert Community,
I am Dean Teague, and on Sunday, March 1, I became the President and CEO of Calvert Health System, which includes Calvert Memorial Hospital and its affiliates. I am excited and honored to have been given the opportunity to serve our community in this capacity, and I am writing today to let you know what you can expect from me and from your health system in the years ahead.
Calvert Memorial Hospital is your community hospital. I, along with the 1,200 talented and committed employees, 350 active medical staff members and 200 volunteers that work alongside me, come to work each day with one goal in mind – providing the best possible health care for our local community. It is important to me that you can count on us and I recognize that kind of trust is earned. I will do my best to safeguard the confidence you place in us when you allow us to care for you and for the most important people in your life.
We understand that you want access to top notch medical care as close to home as possible, and we are fortunate to have many great physicians and medical leaders right here in Calvert County. I plan to support our medical staff in their work; expand the kinds of partnerships that bring the region’s top specialists to our local area; and make investments in technology, education, training and infrastructure so that when you need us, we will always be ready.
I am a member of this community and I am as invested in its health as you are. Calvert Health System plays an important role – not just in helping you get well when you are ill – but in helping you keep well so that you can enjoy all that our beautiful county has to offer. At Calvert Health System, we will be your partners on this life journey - providing resources, support and inspiration to help you stay healthy. When you see me in the gym or out biking, feel free to yell out some words of encouragement, and I’ll do the same for you.
I’d also like to hear your ideas about what you think would make Calvert Health System great, so we’ve set up a page on our website where you can send me your thoughts and suggestions. I can promise we will keep your ideas in mind as we work together to make our community health system one we are all proud to call ours.
