Hello Carolinas!

Today is my first day as President and Chief Executive Officer of Carolinas HealthCare System.

I’m excited to not only be a part of a great organization, but also becoming a new resident of Charlotte and the Carolinas. I’m looking forward to meeting to the people who make the organization and the community so unique. In the coming weeks and months, I plan to spend most of my time visiting hospitals, doctor’s practices and other locations across the Carolinas so I can learn what makes the people of our community special, as well as giving people an opportunity to get to know me. Through my travels, I will be sharing my thoughts and impressions here as well as on Twitter. I hope this allows you to see our community through fresh eyes, and perhaps even learn a few new things along the way. If you have any tips, recommendations or questions for me, I’d love to hear them. Send me a note. Since my first week here coincides with National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week, let me also extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our wonderful nurses, clinicians, and support teams who make such an extraordinary difference in the lives of patients every single day. See you soon,


Gene A. Woods
