After serving five months as the Interim Chief Executive Officer of Northern Inyo Healthcare District, Kevin S. Flanigan, MD MBA, has a shorter title.
Dr. Flanigan will be dropping the word “interim” after accepting a two-year contract offer from the district board.
The announcement came at the NIHD Board of Directors meeting Wednesday evening following a closed session performance evaluation for Dr. Flanigan.
Upon return to open session, Board President Denise Hayden announced the directors unanimously voted 5-0 to make Dr. Flanigan’s role as CEO a long-term, ongoing relationship.
“The Board is so pleased to announce this decision,” Mrs. Hayden said Thursday morning. “Dr. Flanigan led us through a difficult transition as Interim CEO and re-established the confidence of our staff and our community. He has many new and exciting ideas in store for the hospital, and we look forward to seeing him build a strong healthcare team for this community.”
