February 14, 2023

Randall Dauby, CEO of Pinckneyville Community Hospital, was recognized in Becker Hospital Review’s, 80 Rural Hospital CEOs to Know in 2023.  Rural hospitals are critical to the success of the U.S. healthcare system to expand access to care in remote areas. CEOs at the helm of these important community institutions have many responsibilities to make sure their hospitals thrive.


The executives featured have put their heart and soul into ensuring their communities have access to the best healthcare services possible. While rural hospitals across the country have faced closure in recent years, these leaders have developed a model for not only surviving, but thriving. 


Mr. Dauby leads a $36 million healthcare organization consisting of a critical access hospital, rural health clinic, senior life behavioral program and a rehabilitation and fitness center. He has served in rural healthcare leadership throughout his entire career and understands the fragile environment of rural health. He is constantly advocating for the needs of rural healthcare providers near and far. He has been essential to growing services at Pinckneyville Community Hospital and recently oversaw a $12 million expansion project there. 


“Nothing is more rewarding than when the work that you do makes a positive impact on the lives of others.  I have worked in rural healthcare for over forty years, and what inspires me most of all is the dedicated, devoted staff who provide our community with the healthcare they deserve.  While “rural” often gets overlooked, it is great to see how we can provide such quality care to those in need,” stated Randall Dauby, CEO.
