Hospital continues to search for new CFO BY PATTI CARPENTER The North Big Horn Hospital District board held its regular meeting on May 15. Human resourc- es director Barb Shumway reported that the Chief Fi- nancial Officer position has been re-advertised, seek- ing a person with a strong healthcare background. The position will become vacant as Daphne Hartman retires this summer. Shum- way also reported positions open for EMT, CAN/Elder Assistant, LPN and Activi- ties Aide. Carol Rasmus- sen also retired at the end of April after 27 years with the hospital's business of- fice. CEO Rick Schroeder re- ported that he is continu- ing to review and develop strategies for reduction in Medicaid costs in prepara- tion for a meeting he is in- vited to attend with the leg- islative health committee in September. Schroeder and other hospital administra- tors were invited to share their ideas for cost-saving measures that could help reduce the cost of the Med- icaid program at the meet- ing. He also reported that he has narrowed the search for CT scanner and that he expects the purchase to cost far less than the amount he was authorized to spend at the last meeting. He is waiting for final bids from two major suppliers before making his decision. The new scanner is expected to produce less radiation and improve efficiency. Manager Traci Harri- son reported an average of 76 patients at the New Ho- rizons Care Center and an average of seven residents in the assisted living area. She also reported that the job pool is becoming limited for certain positions, espe- cially CNAs. The board met in ad- vance of the meeting to re- view a tentative budget with CFO Daphne Hart- man. The budget was not passed during the meeting and will be presented again at a future meeting. Board members dis- cussed a hospital associa- tion educational program? for board members. Some expressed the need for fur- ther education, while oth- ers expressed their concern for any mandatory require- ments for board members to attend additional meetings. The hospital board meeting will be held on June 19 in the administra- tive meeting room at the hospital. Local students make University of Wyoming announced its President's Honor Roll this week.
