PARK CITY, Utah. — Lori Weston, Intermountain Park City Hospital administrator, is one of several business leaders to receive an award from Utah Business magazine as part of the publication’s 2021 CEO of the Year awards.
The annual awards program honors senior leaders from across the state who have demonstrated incredible impacts on their organizations and communities.
“Lori’s decisive, unifying leadership at Park City Hospital, particularly in the face of Summit County’s early coronavirus battles, was and continues to be exemplary,” said Rob Allen, Intermountain’s senior vice president and chief operating officer. “She worked with the hospital’s clinical leaders to determine best practices to keep hospital patients, caregivers, and the community safe.”
Weston was instrumental in sharing early lessons from Park City’s pandemic experiences with the leadership of other Intermountain hospitals and keeping other Summit County community leaders informed.
Weston has been with Intermountain Healthcare since 2001 and has served as administrator since 2018.
Looking ahead, Weston said, “My focus in 2021 is to continue to focus on bending the curve here in Summit County by administering vaccinations to as many as possible while helping our caregivers and community heal from the pandemic. Everyone is tired and ready for a new normal. My job is to make sure we have the mental and physical resources available to support the community and caregiver needs.”
