HAMC CEO contract offered

By Staff | Aug 13, 2009

The Good Samaritan Hospital Association has offered a contract for the CEO position at Rugby’s Heart of America Medical Center (HAMC), and should learn early this week whether the person will accept the, says Wes Black, hospital board chairman.

Although Black declined to release the name just yet, he said the board unanimously approved offering the job to the individual, who currently is CEO of a small hospital in Nebraska.

“We feel he’s a good candidate with a lot of experience and comes with outstanding recommendations,’ Black said.

He was one of two to come to Rugby earlier this month for on-site interviews, tour the facility and community.

The search committee has spent the better part of two months on the task of finding the HAMC’s next CEO. A firm hired to advertise and contact potential candidates brought 24 applications for consideration. From there, they were narrowed.

Jerry Jurena, who spent the past 15 years in the position, stepped down to head the N.D. Health Care Association. He is, however, working a few days a week at the facility until his replacement begins.

If the contract is accepted, the new CEO would likely begin work in early fall.
