One of the finalists to be Bartlett Regional Hospital’s next CEO has withdrawn his name from consideration.
Hospital spokesman Jim Strader says William Comer of Kansas City, Kansas took himself out of the running on the eve of the final assessment center interview process. Strader says Comer cited personal reasons, but declined to be more specific.
The hospital board of directors will move forward with the assessment center interviews for the two remaining finalists: Christine Harff, CEO at Sanford Medical Center in Thief River Falls, Minnesota; and in-state candidate Elizabeth Woodyard of the Petersburg Medical Center.
