Hospital CEO resigns
Hillsboro Community Hospital has an interim CEO effective today in the wake of CEO Marion Regier’s resignation.
Regier, who said she is retiring to spend more time with family and grandchildren, said she will leave by the end of this month, with the exact date depending on when an interim CEO is ready to assume full responsibility.
Regier said she submitted her resignation to company officials last week and announced it to hospital employees Tuesday.
Michael Christensen, president of Empower HMS — the company that operates HCH — is interim CEO.
Christensen will remain at HCH until a replacement CEO is hired.
Regier has been with HCH 25 years, serving as CEO the last six years.
According to the Empower HMS website, Christensen has many years of experience with hospitals, clinics, and health systems.
Empower HMS owns numerous other rural hospitals, including Oswego Community Hospital and Horton Community Hospital in Kansas.
