SGCMH Welcomes new Board of Trustee Member


Ste. Genevieve, MO - Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital (SGCMH) welcomes Brock Gibson to its Board of Trustees. Gibson, won his election to the post on April 2, and replaces Mark Fallert who did not run for re-election.

Gibson has been working in rural health care in hospitals like SGCMH for about 15 years. He first worked at a revenue cycle software company for hospitals and then ventured out on his own forming a company to help rural hospitals stay independent and help them with their workflows and general operations.

“We work with every department of the hospital, from inventory to billing to clinical documentation,” said Gibson. “We’ve grown to about 20 employees. It wasn’t necessarily my intention to grow the company, but at the same time I wanted to grow so I could impact more hospitals. It’s been very rewarding.”

Gibson was actually born at SGCMH and now is honored to serve on its board.

“This hospital has always been important to me and my family,” he said. “I’ve gained a lot of rural health care knowledge and expertise, and I knew that at some point I’d probably be working with SGCMH in some capacity. When this opportunity came about I took advantage of it and figured it would be a good place for me to come in and take some of the things I’ve learned and apply them to help our community.”

Gibson hasn’t sat on the hospital side of the table before, but he believes he’ll bring a different viewpoint.

“This will be interesting,” he said. “I might have some questions that the other board members might not have. I think I can see through the numbers and know what they mean from a workflow perspective.”

Gibson said he shares the board and the hospital’s vision for keeping SGCMH independent.

“The independence of the hospital gives us the ability to control the decisions that are made. When larger facilities come in, they typically start changing things that end up creating much bigger problems. If this happened, I would be shocked if we did not lose labor and delivery. The hospital now runs very efficiently in a way that labor and delivery can stay and that’s really a very special thing that we have. It’s vital that SGCMH stays independent, and I know the board agrees with me on that.”

This Ste. Genevieve native, lived and worked in the St. Louis area following a stint in the Navy. He gradually moved his family south to Arnold, Herculaneum and a couple of years ago, he was back in Ste. Genevieve County.

“Over my career I’ve traveled and visited every state except Hawaii,” Gibson said. “I’ve worked extensively in rural healthcare and we have something very special in Ste. Gen and Bloomsdale and it was pulling me back the whole time I was gone.”

Gibson has also jumped with both feet into the business community with two businesses, one in Ste. Genevieve and one in Bloomsdale. Hospital CEO Dr. Steve Pautler said he is pleased to welcome Gibson to the board.

“His community involvement and unique career experiences complement our mission of putting people first by providing excellent, personalized, and compassionate healthcare.”

Gibson joins Rod Scherer, Veronica Sharlow, Bruce Giesler and Kurt Basler on the SGCMH Board of Trustees.
