LCCH Board praises hospital staff, continues focus on high quality patient-centered care
Aug 8, 2007
OFFICIAL STATEMENT BY THE LAKE CHELAN COMMUNITY HOSPITAL BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
The search for a new CEO at Lake Chelan Community Hospital (LCCH) is underway, and an interim administrator will be in place when outgoing CEO Larry Peterson leaves August 31.
The hospital's mission and vision for high quality patient-centered care remain the same, and the board of commissioners has full confidence in the hospital's dedicated staff, management and officers.
"With our excellent team of staff and management, the hospital is in great hands," said LCCH Board president Fred Miller, "and we will continue to provide high quality healthcare for the residents of the Lake Chelan Valley."
In the search for a new hospital administrator, the LCCH board of commissioners will look for an experienced team builder dedicated to patient-centered care. He or she will have an understanding of community and critical access hospitals, as well as construction projects.
As the hiring process can take several months, an interim administrator will oversee management of the hospital beginning September 1. The Board will announce the name of the interim administrator as soon as possible.
