Bartlett Regional Hospital’s board of directors has named Dennis Stillman interim Chief Financial Officer.
Stillman will take over for Garth Hamblin, who is leaving the hospital when the board’s new consulting contract with Quorum Health Resources takes effect on February 1st. The board previously had a “management services” contract with Quorum, which meant the company employed the hospital’s chief executive and chief financial officers. Under the new agreement those positions will be employed by the hospital.
Stillman has many years of experience in the area of health care finances, mostly in Washington state. His interim post will last up to a year.
The hospital board plans to hire an executive search firm to help it recruit a permanent CEO, who will be responsible for hiring a long-term financial officer.
Bartlett Regional Hospital is owned by the City and Borough of Juneau, and gets most of its operating funds from fees for patient services. The hospital’s board of directors is appointed by the CBJ Assembly.
