More changes are coming to Good Sheperd Hospital in Shelbyville. After its name change in January and additional services announced last week, Hospital Sisters Health System announced Monday that Aaron Puchbauer will become the president and CEO of Good Sheperd Hospital on May 15. Puchbauer has been serving as the Interim President and CEO at HSHS St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield.


Puchbauer says growing up, serving a small town hospital was what he wanted to do.



Puchbauer started with HSHS in 2009 at HSHS St. John’s in Springfield. He has been at St. Francis in Litchfield for five and a half years before taking the position in Shelbyville. Puchbauer says he hopes to bring positive changes to healthcare for Shelby County residents.


Puchbauer is originally from southeast Missouri. He, his wife, and three sons plan on relocating to Shelbyville.
