Hospital Chiefs in Hartselle ousted

HARTSELLE, AL (WAFF)- Hartselle Medical Center is losing the two top positions at that hospital. The chief executive officer and the chief financial officer's positions are being eliminated.

Capella Health Care owns both the Hartselle facility and Parkway Medical Center in Decatur. Parkway's CEO Tim McGill and CFO Danny Crow will take responsibilities for both hospitals.

When asked about any other employment changes, hospital officials said it's too soon to speculate.

The two facilities have worked as "sister" organizations for many years.

"We have always tried to work closely together to improve the health care delivery system in Morgan County.  And now, with health care reform on the horizon, it's very important for hospitals to work smarter and more efficiently, which makes this move even better," said Parkway spokesperson Tina Weeks.

Weeks said by using a "system approach" for management, they will combine resources that, she says, will give them size and strength.
