The Paynesville Area Health Care System Board of Directors has accepted the resignation of Bobbe Teigen, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), as of Feb. 29, 2012.
Teigen, who served Paynesville Area Health Care System as CEO since March 23, 2009 has chosen to accept a new position outside of Minnesota, closer to her family.
Robert Brauchler, Chairperson of the Hospital Board of Directors, stated that Teigen was a very capable CEO and did a terrific job during these challenging times. "Given the challenges facing rural health care systems today, I don't know that anyone else could have done a better job," Brauchler said.
Brauchler stated that the board will move forward and has enlisted the services of Experienced Resources out of Minneapolis in an interim CEO search. Experienced Resources is an executive search firm specializing in placing high-level, seasoned executives on an interim basis and they use a thorough methodology in matching skills and the client's culture when selecting the executive to fill the client's need. Their talent pool of some 600 executives have a deep know-how of the health care industry. Plans are to have the interim CEO in place prior to Teigen's last day which will be March 23.
