DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The Finley Hospital's new president and CEO David Brandon met the media Tuesday.

Brandon was formerly the president and CEO of Fayette Regional Health System in Connersville, Ind.

He comes with 20 years of health care executive leadership experience.

He said after coming from a city with only one hospital, he's now excited to be in a community along with Mercy Hospital.

"You look toward your other partners, the other providers of care in your community, as opportunities to collaborate and not compete," Brandon said, "and I think that's where we, as an organization, will build our strengths."

Brandon replaces Finley's former president and CEO John Knox, who is now the president and CEO of Waterloo's Allen Hospital.

Both hospitals are affiliates of Iowa Health System.
