Laramie Hospital Tries Different Management Approach

Laramie, Wy – A management support company will run the day to day operations of Laramie's Ivinson Memorial hospital. Board Chairwoman Betty Stinson says they have hired Quorum Health Resources to run the hospital for a year and if it goes well, they could go beyond that. Stinson says it is a different approach then hiring a single C-E-O, but the board decided with all the issues that the hospital has been facing, that a company with an array of services was best. Accusations of Hospital mismanagement led to the resignation of the past Ivinson C-E-O, which led to several morale issues at the hospital. Stinson says this company has dealt with such things in the past. She admits she's excited about bringing them on board.
