Lewis County General Hospital has a new CEO.
Jerry Cayer will take over as head of the hospital on July 31.
Cayer comes to Lowville from Maine, where he was chief operating officer of Franklin Memorial Hospital.
Cayer says his first steps will be to review hospital systems and visit communities throughout Lewis County.
"I think the overlay now of confusion in Washington and how health care will be financed moving forward, we just have to be very attentive to that," he said.
Cayer will replace interim CEO Michele Prince, who will continue as the hospital's chief operating officer.
