Executive fills in during Middle Park Medical Center CEO search
KREMMLING — The Kremmling Memorial Hospital Board of Directors welcomed Henry Garvin as executive consultant to the Middle Park Medical Center leadership team at its special board meeting on Thursday, June 12, at MPMC-Kremmling.
The Board appointed Chief Operating Officer Trampas Hutches and Chief Financial Officer Brendan Gale as co-interim CEOs on May 29 after receiving CEO Cole White’s resignation the same day. The Board then worked with Centura Health, which manages Middle Park Medical Center, to identify a highly qualified consultant to work with MPMC’s staff while searching for a CEO.
Garvin, who is from Alamosa, began work Monday, June 9 and will continue through Aug. 1, when he will begin a professor position with Adams State University in Alamosa. He is employed by Centura Health.
Garvin holds a Master of Health Administration and Master of Business Administration from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. He has 17 years of experience in numerous health care administration roles, most recently the interim CEO of Greeley County Health Services through Quorum Health Resources management company, and is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
“I am excited to have Henry’s expertise in the health care industry as we make this transition,” said Bernie Murphy, president of the Kremmling Memorial Hospital District Board of Directors. “He will provide counsel to our leadership team as Centura Health and the Board of Directors continue our search for MPMC’s new CEO.”
At Thursday’s meeting, Garvin said his preliminary review of data reveals an opportunity for Middle Park Medical Center to capture more of the market share in its coverage area. He plans to share more information about his assessment at the monthly board meeting, which will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 25.
“We have a lot of opportunity for growth,” Garvin said. “I think we have a great team here. They are welcoming and smart and truly want what’s best for the organization.”
