HRH selects 25-Year Seasoned Hospital Executive as Next CEO
October 19, 2009
Holy Rosary Healthcare has selected Ron Webb as President/CEO of Holy Rosary Healthcare effective December 7, 2009. Webb, with over 25 years of health care administration experience, was selected over 130 other candidates for the position.
"Ron is a good fit for Holy Rosary with his diverse professional background," said Monty Lesh, HRH governing board chair. "He has worked in large and small hospitals that have been independent, free-standing facilities and ones that are part of larger systems."
Webb has spent the majority of his career living in rural communities and was particularly interested in Holy Rosary and Miles City and all that they offer. He added: "Annette and I are very excited about our move to Miles City and are looking forward to being part of a great organization in Holy Rosary Healthcare. We are very impressed by the facility, medical staff, board and commitment of employees that we have experienced so far. It was equally impressive to see the interest and support of the local hospital by many people we've spoken to in Miles City. From what I have seen, I believe Holy Rosary Healthcare has the potential to be among the elite rural hospitals in the country."
He holds dual masters degrees in health care and business administration from the University of Missouri and an undergraduate degree from Arkansas State University.
Interim CEO John Isely will continue working closely with the Holy Rosary medical staff, board, and employees through early December to ensure a smooth transition for Webb.
Holy Rosary Healthcare, a Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System affiliate, operates a 49-bed acute care hospital, physician medical arts center, and extended care living community in Miles City, Montana. The organization has over 500 employees, volunteers, and medical staff affiliated with the organization and has been serving eastern Montana for 99 years.
