The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals said Monday that John Bowling, CEO of Hamilton Health Care System, has been named its CEO of the Year. Bowling was selected from among the CEOs of all alliance member hospitals as having a record of achievement and concern for his community.

“It would be hard to imagine a CEO more deserving of this honor than John Bowling,” said alliance CEO Monty Veazey. “Under John’s leadership, Hamilton has completely revamped and modernized its surgical and emergency facilities. It has also added a brand new maternal and infant care center, as well as opening its own outpatient surgery center. Every year, wise financial planning allows the hospital to add multiple lifesaving devices and procedures.   These efforts have had a real consequence for the community: patients can get groundbreaking treatments close to home, often with much lower side effects and much higher levels of effectiveness.”

 “I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this tremendous honor than John Bowling,” said G. Lamar Lyle, chair of the Hamilton Health Care System board. “This community should be very proud of John for receiving this award. Everyone at Hamilton is especially glad that he is getting some much deserved recognition as his retirement approaches. This is not only a great honor for John, but for the residents of this area and anyone who is involved with Hamilton Health Care System.” 

Bowling is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and has served as regent for the state of Georgia for that organization. He has also served as a director for the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, chairman of the Georgia Hospital Association and chairman of the Voluntary Hospital Association of Georgia. He is an active member of the Dalton Rotary Club and a graduate of the Leadership Dalton-Whitfield class of 2002. He has served as vice chairman of the Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition and chairman of the board of directors and as a member of the executive board of the Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce. He has also served on the boards of the Northwest Georgia Healthcare Partnership, the United Way of Northwest Georgia and the Salvation Army.
