Justin R. Krueger has joined Crossgates River Oaks Hospital as Chief Operating Officer.
Krueger, a native of Florida, joins Crossgates River Oaks after several years of executive experience in the healthcare industry. Most recently, Krueger served as Chief Operating Officer for Lehigh Regional Medical Center in Lehigh Acres, Fla.
Prior to moving into hospital management positions, he made significant contributions to various aspects of the healthcare industry, including physician and ancillary data analysis, contract negotiation, compliance, departmental management and community relations.
Krueger earned both a master’s in health administration and a bachelor of science degree from the University of Florida.
Crossgates River Oaks CEO Allen Tyra said attracting a leader with Krueger’s broad array of healthcare experience and education will be beneficial in helping the hospital to remain fiscally-stable and move forward in several key areas.
“In addition to his leadership and financial management skills, Justin is committed to our mission and our community service principles,” said Tyra. “He has amassed valuable experience while learning the job of every healthcare professional in the hospital throughout previous management positions. He will be an important member of our administrative team as he provides insight to help grow our existing operations.”
Krueger will coordinate the operations of several key areas of the hospital and be responsible for ensuring compliance with the mission of CRO and all regulatory guidelines.
