Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that Margie Molitor, FACHE has accepted the position of Interim CEO beginning June 6, 2016. Molitor is coming to Hot Springs Memorial Hospital from Big Horn County Hospital District in Basin, Wyoming where she is their current interim CEO.
Molitor began her career as a registered nurse, and was a chief nursing officer for 14 years followed by 10-plus years in CEO work. She earned her nursing degree from South Dakota State University, and worked for Banner Health for 24 years, all of it in small hospitals in South Dakota, Utah, Nebraska and Wyoming. Molitor, who is accredited as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, went to work for HealthTechS3 in 2014 and has held several interim CEO assignments in the last several years.
Molitor was brought in by HealthTechS3, which contracts with the hospital. She expects to be on the job through the recruitment process for a new permanent CEO.
“I’m excited to be here,” she said. “We’ve got people here who really want to do a good job for the community.” Molitor said HealthTechS3 assigns its interim CEOs to be active managers and not just hold down the fort during a transition. “We’re expected not just to manage, but to improve,” she said. Molitor said she’ll focus on ensuring efficiency of operations and good customer service, and also assist the board with the ongoing CEO recruitment process. As for her own style, she said, “I believe in a culture of accountability, and doing things the way they should be done.”
Robin A. Roling, outgoing CEO notes, “I have had the good fortune of working with Margie in a variety of settings over the past six years or so. I know she has many skills and talents that will serve our community and hospital well as we move forward. We are fortunate to have her on board!”
Neil Todhunter, President of HealthTechS3, added, “We look forward to continuing to work with the Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital Board throughout the placement process and also in achieving their long term strategic goals and initiatives."
HealthTech has already been advertising the permanent position, and the hospital board is expected to begin reviewing resumes in the next few months. The hiring process will include site visits and board interviews with the top candidates. While HealthTechS3 reaches out to attract candidates, Molitor stressed, “The selection will be the board’s decision.”
