New Statewide Leadership Structure in Kansas

The transformation of Central Kansas Medical Center, Great Bend, KS, to St. Rose Ambulatory and Surgery Center continued with the board of directors' approval of a single, statewide leadership structure for CHI operations in Kansas. Scott Taylor, currently president and chief executive officer for St. Catherine Hospital, Garden City, KS, was named president and chief executive officer of CHI Kansas, effective May 16. One of Taylor's first duties in his new role will be to select a full-time administrator for St. Rose. Both St. Rose and St. Catherine will continue to be governed by their local boards of directors.
