JCHC Board Begins Process To Find New Administrator

At their Wednesday meeting, the Johnson County Healthcare Center's Board of Trustees voted to begin the lengthy process of finding a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO)/Administrator to replace current CEO/Administrator Nicole Hobbs.

Hobbs has given notice that she plans to leave her position in January for personal reasons, after almost two years on the job.

The hospital board discussed qualities they might be looking for in the candidates interested in the job, which included those they have in Hobbs. Those include a knowledge of healthcare finance, a willingness to deal with personnel issues, and an understanding of information technology, according to Board President Dr. Mark Schueler.

The board also discussed the possibility of hiring an interim administrator if necessary, as it is not likely the facility will find a suitable candidate by January when Hobbs leaves the position.

After the discussions, the board voted to use a job description written by Hobbs to post on various websites to get word out of the opening, and will further discuss the matter at a special meeting on November 13th, after the new board members are put in place by voters on November 6th.
