Hospital CEO Radke Contract Concludes Immediately
The St. Vincent General Hospital District Board of Directors and Centura Health are working extensively to identify solutions to build and sustain high quality health care services in Lake County.
In our continued efforts and collaboration, we have reached a natural transition where we are moving from a CEO leadership structure to a site administrator focused on the clinical processes and management that is needed to successfully implement our plan.
The contract with current interim CEO/CFO, Sam Radke will conclude effective immediately. “Sam Radke worked with us during very uncertain times at St. Vincent Hospital. He applied his knowledge and vast experience to our sustainability and we are thankful for his service.” commented Denny Johnson, Hospital Board of Directors Chairperson.
“Sam brought considerable experience and expertise as a former CFO and found solutions to immediate challenges facing the hospital leaving us in a much stronger position” said Russ Johnson, SVP for Outreach of Centura Health.
The hospital board is currently working on the process to identify a leader, as well as identifying a leadership structure that is conducive to the changes ahead. For now, SVH Administrator Bobbi Swenson, administrator, will serve in the interim role and work closely with the Board and leaders from St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, part of the Centura Health Network. Swenson has more than 25 years of health care experience serving as Chief Nursing Officer in several rural hospitals.
