L. Lee Isley Appointed to North Carolina Hospital Association Board of Trustees


OXFORD, NC (April 30, 2010) – Granville Health System (GHS) announced that L. Lee Isley, GHS Chief Executive Officer, has been chosen to help set policy for the state’s hospital trade association. Isley recently began a three-year term as an at-large member of the board of trustees of the North Carolina Hospital Association.


“I am pleased to have this opportunity to continue working with the North Carolina Hospital Association,” said Isley. “It is important that our community and Granville Health System have a voice determining the direction of health care policy in North Carolina.”


Isley joins three other hospital administrators and a physician as incoming members of the 22-person board.


“We are delighted to have Lee Isley joining our board and greatly appreciate his commitment,” said Bill Pully, president of the organization that represents 130 hospitals and health systems statewide. “Lee has demonstrated great leadership at his hospital, particularly on quality issues, and as a former member of the association’s Policy Development Committee. Lee brings valuable insights and a wealth of experience to his board service.”


Isley has served on the NCHA Policy Development Committee for two years. During this time, the committee has helped develop and support health care policy that sets the stage for how hospitals throughout North Carolina improve the delivery of health care for their patients. By focusing on national health care issues before Congress and state level issues before the General Assembly, the Policy Development Committee has helped state agencies and the North Carolina hospital industry set a high standard of care for the communities they serve.


In August of 2006, Isley was selected as the new Chief Executive Officer for Granville Health System. He has found great success in developing physician relationships and working partnerships, benefiting both Granville Health System and the community. Working in conjunction with an effective board of trustees and an exceptional medical team, he has led the health system as it added new service lines, recruited medical staff and acquired new regional health care providers. During this growth, GHS has had a 32% growth rate in outpatient services, along with significant increases in inpatient and surgical services. Isley continues to focus on developing an engaged medical staff and identifying growth opportunities that set Granville Health System apart from other regional health systems.
