Michigan hospital restructures board about a month after CEO's firing

Sheridan (Mich.) Community Hospital reorganized its board and restructured its organization roughly a month after the board fired the hospital's CEO.

The executive board is being led by Jerry Rizqallah, an entrepreneur and real estate investor, and Mark Clark, MD, president of Samaritan Health Care in Greenville, Mich. Samaritan Health Care recently took over patient services at Sheridan Community. The former board resigned after appointing the new executive board.

Sheridan Community Hospital said its new board is "committed to the vision of maintaining Sheridan Community Hospital's status as a critical access, rural community hospital." The new board is creating a separate advisory board to uphold this vision, which will include local community members.

The change comes a little over a month after the previous board fired CEO Randy Flechsig. Bobbi McColley, Sheridan Community's HIPAA compliance officer, will continue to serve as interim CEO during the transition and will be a member of the advisory board.
