It is my pleasure to announce today that Kim Marks has been named permanent CEO for Southampton Memorial Hospital effective immediate. Kim has worked in a number of roles over her past 21 years at the hospital, most recently Interim CEO and Assistant CEO, but she made her first appearance here at birth. Probably no one knows the hospital quite as well as her, and I am delighted that she has been appointed to this position.
Kim has shared her excitement about this new role and looks forward to growing how our hospital serves our community. Recruiting new physicians, restoring inpatient dialysis and renovating our long term care facility are among recent ways we have expanded our services. Kim is dedicated to working with our management team, physicians and employees to identify ways we can continue this commitment.
Please join me in congratulating Kim on her new role. Thank you for your dedication to providing patients with quality, compassionate care. I appreciate all you do.
