My Dream Job
Now HCMC’s CEO, Dr. Jon Pryor got his start in healthcare when he worked as a nursing assistant the summer before college. He found his life’s work in the rewarding connections he was able to create with patients: "I felt very privileged to be able to touch the patients both physically and emotionally. I felt like I made a difference to them, and it felt good to me as well." After graduating from medical school, he went on to work as a surgeon in urology, including two years of training as a resident at HCMC. In his role as HCMC’s CEO, Dr. Pryor sees himself as he always has: as a member of the healthcare team, working side by side with our physicians, nurses, and staff to deliver patient-, family-, and community-centered care to every patient, every day, every time.
