Mickey Foster to head Annie Penn Hospital

Mickey Foster will be the next President of Annie Penn Hospital. Foster, currently the Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of Maria Parham Medical Center in Henderson, begins working at Annie Penn Hospital on May 17.

“I’m excited, honored and humbled to be named the next President of Annie Penn Hospital,” Foster says. “Everyone I’ve met at Annie Penn has been so positive and proud of their hospital. That’s what I like about a smaller community hospital. You get to know everyone on a personal level, and that’s very important to me.”

Foster has been with Maria Parham Medical Center, a 102-bed hospital with more than 630 employees, since 2007. While there, he increased revenues, improved patient volumes and patient satisfaction, and coordinated several construction projects. Prior to that, he was an administrative director at Duke Raleigh Hospital for five years. He also has worked at Randolph Hospital in Asheboro and Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst.

“Mickey will help us preserve and build upon Annie Penn Hospital’s long tradition of caring for the community, while at the same time helping create a vision and strategic plan for an exciting future for healthcare in Reidsville and Rockingham County,” says Terry Akin, Chief Operating Officer at Moses Cone Health System.

Foster has a bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University and a master’s degree in health services administration from Central Michigan University.

In May, Annie Penn Hospital celebrates its 80th anniversary of providing a wide range of care to the people of Reidsville and the surrounding area. It is one of the largest employers in Reidsville with a staff of 472 dedicated professionals. Annie Penn Hospital is part of Moses Cone Health System.
