Fauquier Hospital: Treating Patients Right

While at an American Hospital Association conference recently, a fellow member of the Regional Policy Board sought out Rodger Baker, CEO and president of Fauquier Health, to give him some welcome positive feedback.

Rodger remembered, “He was the deputy director of operations for all of the VA hospitals in the country. He came up to me and asked me if I was from Warrenton.

“I said I was and he said, ‘Boy, you guys really get it down there.’

“He lives in Gainesville and said that he and his wife have been in our Emergency Department and that his wife had surgery here. He was very happy with the way they were treated.

“He added that his parents lived in Tidewater and went to a big hospital with a good reputation. He said, ‘They could learn a thing or two from you.’ ”
