Luke West is a chief executive of Relias Healthcare in Tupelo, where he oversees daily operations and strategic growth for an organization of more than 120 clinicians and healthcare workers and is responsible for supporting the emergency treatment of more than 750 patients per day across two states and six hospitals.
Quotable: “It excites me to see our city highlighted nationally in the many areas that we are thriving. My vision for Tupelo is to continue to be different among comparable communities in the South. I love the fact that we are thriving in areas of food, entertainment, supporting our local businesses, and being a national cornerstone for banking, manufacturing and healthcare. I see a future Tupelo only capitalizing on those traits and become a place that is diverse, inclusive, and where people are proud of being a Southern town where we still know our Southern manners and how to smile at people in the grocery aisle.”
