Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County in Rock Springs, Wyo., appointed Irene Richardson permanent CEO, effective immediately.

Here are four notes:

1. Ms. Richardson served as the hospital's interim CEO since February, following the controversial departure of Jerry Klein. The CEO filed a claim he was wrongfully terminated, and the hospital countersued alleging Mr. Klein hid financial information from the hospital board and overstepped his fiduciary duty.

2. Ms. Richardson previously served as the hospital's CFO.

3. She worked at the hospital since 1985, when she joined the fiscal services department.

4. She then served as director of materials management, controller and assumed the CFO role in 2010.
