New CEO Bringing Changes to Regional Medical Center

Regional Medical Center’s new CEO Charlie Button has been on the job for just over seven months – and the hospital has seen several changes since he arrived late last summer.

Dr. Ried Boom, RMC’s Inpatient Medical Director, says a lot of things were put on hold last year while the hospital searched for a new CEO.

Button says the pace of change in healthcare – specifically, rural healthcare – has accelerated. But he says they are focused on remaining an independent hospital.

Dr. Boom says there is a lot of change happening all at once at RMC, but he says the medical staff is very optimistic of the direction the hospital is going. He says there are several examples of initiatives that RMC’s medical staff and administration is working on.

And the public will have a chance to visit with Regional Medical Center’s CEO to find out more about these changes and ask other questions during some upcoming community meetings.

We’ll let you know when those community meetings are scheduled – keep it tuned to Mix 94.7 KMCH.
