CEO Debra Sukin: Expanding St. Luke's The Woodlands Hospital With Heart
Debra Sukin is the CEO of St. Luke's The Woodlands (Texas) Hospital and St. Luke's Lakeside Hospital in Woodlands. She also serves as senior vice president of St. Luke's Episcopal Health System in Houston. Among her many duties, Ms. Sukin has found time to lead St. Luke's in growth and expansion with hard-work and a little heart.

The hospital has since received Pathway to Excellence designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center and certifications in chest pain and primary stroke. The hospital has also doubled its bed capacity, and has been named one of the best regional hospitals in Houston.
In addition to serving the St. Luke's system, Ms. Sukin finds time to serve her community. She is as a member of the Texas Hospital Association Council on Policy Development and actively speaks for South Montgomery County/Woodlands Chamber of Commerce.
