South Big Horn County Hospital CEO tenders his resignation

John Adlesich, CEO of South Big Horn County Hospital in Basin, Wyo., submitted his resignation to the hospital board, according to a Northern Wyoming Daily News report.

Mr. Adlesich gave the board a 60-day notice of resignation, saying he wanted to move back to Oregon. "Initially I planned on being here for three years, but I was transparent during my interviews about an eventual desire to return back to Oregon," he said, according to the report.

The board has not yet accepted or discussed his resignation. There is a board meeting Feb. 28.

The community recorded dissatisfaction with three board members as well as Mr. Adlesich. Community members created a petition asking for the three board members to resign, which was read at the board's January meeting. One community member also said at the same meeting "he felt that Adlesich led by intimidation and that some of the staff at the hospital were in fear of losing their jobs," according to the report.

Mr. Adlesich said that the community's dissatisfaction and calls for his resignation had nothing to do with his decision to step down, the Northern Wyoming Daily News reports.
