Branson’s  Skaggs Regional Medical Center welcomes Gary Lambert as its new Director of Human Resources.  Lambert will lead the department in the same outstanding customer service Skaggs provides to its patients on an internal customer-oriented basis; addressing all staff needs of Skaggs.

Prior to joining the team at Skaggs Lambert worked for a number of years in hotel management, transitioning to Human Resources in 1988.  He worked as Director of Human Resources at Grosvenor Resort at Walt Disney World Village for 9 years and came to the Ozarks in 1997 as the Director of Human Resources at Big Cedar Lodge, where he worked for almost 12 years.  His training programs geared toward customer service will capitalize the already strong dedication Skaggs’ employees have to their customers.

Lambert says, “Skaggs is a highly respected employer in this area and everyone working here should be very proud of that fact.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join the team here at Skaggs.”

Lambert and his wife, Debby, have been married for 35 years.  Debby works for the City of Branson.  Lambert says his mother, Barbara, has lived in Branson since 2000 and has worked as a Skaggs Volunteer since 2003 in the Surgical Waiting area.
