In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton sits down with Doug Crabtree – the retiring Chief Executive Officer for Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

Crabtree’s career in healthcare has spanned three decades, with most of that time spent at EIRMC. He has served as CEO of the region’s largest healthcare facility for 18 years; prior to his appointment as CEO, Crabtree served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) at EIRMC from 1993-1997, and Assistant Administrator from 1991-1993.

Throughout his tenure, Crabtree says he has been guided by one singular vision: to provide the best care for our patients. He has focused on building services, recruiting physicians and training employees so that residents do not have to travel hours away to receive high-quality healthcare that they deserve.

During their conversation, Eaton and Crabtree discuss the changing state of healthcare, challenges EIRMC faces, the future of EIRMC and a variety of other issues.

Watch the video above for the entire interview.
