Crestwood Medical Center welcomes new CEO

HUNTSVILLE — Crestwood Medical Center’s Board of Trustees has named Matthew Banks as chief executive officer. His appointment is effective July 18.

Banks replaces Dr. Pam Hudson, who will transition to an executive position at Crestwood with a focus on physician initiatives. Crestwood has seen tremendous growth under her leadership over the last 15 years.

“We are confident in Matthew’s exceptional leadership and hospital operational expertise to not only continue our mission of providing quality care with service excellence and more access for our growing region but also to develop effective, collaborative relationships with our physicians, employees, and community as a whole,” said Mike Gillespie, chair of the Board of Trustees. “His commitment to the community’s well-being, advancements in medical care, and working closely with local government, businesses, and community organizations will support continued delivery of quality healthcare in our area.”

Banks joins Crestwood from Merit Health Wesley, a 211-bed acute care facility in Hattiesburg, Miss., where he has served as CEO for the past four years.

“It is a humbling opportunity to join the Crestwood team whose members have consistently lived out the mission of improving patients’ quality of life and enhancing the well-being of the community,” Banks said. “I’m excited to support the work of the skilled, compassionate physicians and employees delivering quality care and services.”

Previously, he was CEO at Davis Regional Medical Center in Statesville, N.C.; chief operating officer at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center in Mooresville, N.C.; and chief operating/nursing officer and interim CEO at Stringfellow Memorial Hospital in Anniston.

Banks has a master’s in nursing with a concentration in health services administration degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham; bachelor’s degrees in nursing and psychology and an associate’s degree in nursing.
