Columbia County Magazine spotlights “Person You Should Know” Lee Ann Liska

Never burn bridges. That’s the advice AU Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Lee Ann Liska shares in the Person You Should Know (P.Y.S.K.) feature in the June issue of Columbia County Magazine. If you want to make fast friends with her, you might offer her a box of Jujyfruits or talk about an episode of The Crown.

But what she’s really passionate about is improving the health care experiences of our patients and families. Through facing health issues in her own family, Liska has gained valuable personal insight into how to make those encounters better. Read the story online, or pick up a copy of the magazine on newsstands.
