David Lane, president of the Delta County Memorial Hospital board of directors, announced this week that Jason Cleckler has been appointed the hospital's permanent CEO based upon his "superb job performance" during his interim tenure as acting CEO.
The hospital board and Cleckler have agreed to maintain the high quality of health care and medical services currently offered to the community.
Lane added his appreciation to Cleckler and all of the hospital employees for a successful review by the Joint Commission. They also recently implemented the hospital's electronic medical records system.
Cleckler was named acting hospital CEO in September after sharing administrative duties with the hospital's chief financial officer following the termination of hospital administrator John Mitchell in July.
"I appreciate the support the board has given me and the hospital during this transition time and I look forward to maintaining the quality of care provided at DCMH while preparing the hospital for the future challenges in health care," Cleckler said.
Cleckler was hired as a trauma nurse coordinator at DCMH about five years ago. A year later he was named emergency department director and trauma program manager. He then served as chief clinical officer for two years.blog comments powered by Disqus
