Kansas hospital reinstates CEO on administrative leave

The Norton (Kan.) County Hospital board of trustees have voted to reinstate CEO Brian Kirk, who was placed on administrative leave in December, a hospital spokesperson confirmed to Becker's.

Spokesperson Katie Allen Wagner said the board voted Jan. 4 to reinstate Mr. Kirk, effective Jan. 16. 

The move came after a Dec. 15 board meeting, during which the board approved placing Mr. Kirk on administrative leave. At the time, board members indicated they wanted to do an internal investigation, according to Ms. Allen Wagner. No additional details were provided. 

Ms. Allen Wagner said about 100 people attended a Sept. 27 town hall meeting in person and another 100 were online. During the meeting, Mr. Kirk received various questions from the public about working conditions and the treatment of employees.
