It has been a great honor to work with our patients, community, board and team over the past three years. I look forward to closely following the future success of Chadron Community Hospital & Health Services and wish the board, and the entire team, all the best."

Mr. Hough has served as CEO of Chadron Community Hospital and Health Services since May 2020. He assumed the role after holding CEO roles at Crook County Medical Services District in Sundance, Wyo.; Niobrara County Hospital District in Lusk, Wyo.; and Saratoga (Wyo.) Care Center.

"We sincerely thank Nathan for his contributions to Chadron Community Hospital & Health Services and for laying the foundation for the next phase of growth and care for our community and surrounding areas," Curt Plooster, president of the board of trustees for Chadron Community Hospital and Health Services, said in the release. "The board remains focused on Chadron Community Hospital and Health Services reaching its full potential and will work to ensure this transition is smooth while we undertake the search process."
