Elliot Hospital's new CEO ready for his next challenge
Jim Woodward, president and chief executive of Meriter Health Services of Madison, Wisc., will join Elliot early next month, hospital officials announced. He takes over for Douglas Dean, who plans to retire later this month from the job he held for 16 years at Elliot.
Bigger isn’t necessarily better, Woodward said in a telephone interview Monday.
He praised Elliot’s electronic medical records system and its large physician network.
The announcement was made by Dianne Mercier, chairman of the Elliot board and the search committee.
Mercier said 93 people applied for Dean’s job. The search committee, which she headed, interviewed six. She said the board is currently in negotiation with Woodward over his salary.
Rick Phelps is president of Elliot Hospital and chief operating officer of Elliot Health System.
