CEO Message

For more than a century, Three Rivers Health has been serving St. Joseph and Kalamazoo counties as well as surrounding communities in southern Michigan. Over 26 years of experience in the healthcare industry did not prepare me for the wonderful surprise of discovering the advanced technology and specialized healthcare services offered at Three Rivers Health when I took the position of CEO, including our all-digital imaging department and our network of clinics. We are fortunate to have the expertise of a dedicated team of physicians, providers and staff members.”

“Three Rivers Health operates one hospital and 16 clinics and employs around 550 associates. We offer a variety of inpatient and outpatient services, including emergency care, an inpatient rehabilitation center, orthopedics and women’s health. We also operate HealthTRAC, a fitness center at our hospital’s campus.

We have just leveraged our greatest strength of connecting with heart through our 2021 partnership with Beacon Health System. Our organizations’ values, beliefs and cultures are very much aligned. Having the support of a larger health system allows us to operate more efficiently and will better equip us to serve our patients’ needs. Both Beacon Health System and Three Rivers Health share a commitment to providing clinical excellence and outstanding care close to home with local decision making and governance.

I am pleased that this agreement will expand our already incredible healthcare capabilities and patient care to over 1,100 Beacon Health System physicians, providers, and specialists who offer clinical expertise in trauma, orthopedics, heart, vascular and cancer care.

We hear story after story from our satisfied patients about the wonderful care they received here, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for our patients and community members as they are able to access more facilities and services in our region. We hope to share many of those stories in the very near future and for many years to come.

Dave Shannon, President & CEO
