The Magruder Hospital Board of Trustees Chairman, Paul Druckenmiller, has announced that Todd Almendinger, the current Vice-President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer at Magruder, has been appointed Interim CEO of the hospital.
The appointment occurred following the recent resignation of Michael E. Long as President & CEO of the hospital.
"Mike has been with Magruder Hospital over twenty years and we value the contributions he has made toward the success of this hospital. We respect the decision he has made and wish him well on his future endeavors," says Druckenmiller.
Druckenmiller commented on the Board's decision to appoint Todd Almendinger as Interim CEO of Magruder.
"Todd is a proven leader at Magruder and in the community. He has been part of the hospital's senior leadership team for six years and the Board is confident in his abilities as Interim CEO. Magruder is a successful organization because of the leadership and support of all who work here, not just a few, and that certainly remains the case today."
When asked if a search for a new CEO would begin, Druckenmiller commented "The Board will now begin to consider the appropriate steps for the future."
Almendinger came to Magruder in 2006 after being the Vice-President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of Grady Memorial Hospital in Delaware, Ohio, for eighteen years. He earned his Bachelor of Science and Masters of Business Administration from Bowling Green State University and is a member of the Health Care Financial Management Association and the American College of Health Care Executives.
