The Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees has announced Dan Bonk and Craig J. Marks as finalists for the hospital’s CEO position.
Bonk had served as CEO of Aspen Valley Hospital for about two years when he announced his resignation in January. He told The Aspen Times that “challenges with my family and indirect family” sparked his decision to resign.
Marks had held the post as president of Mark Twain Medical Center in Summit, Wis., for more than three years when he resigned in December. It was a period referred to by the Calaveras Enterprise as an “era of stability.”
Reached by phone, TMH Board Chairman Forrest Luke noted the importance of experience in the hospital’s next CEO, given the hospital’s movement away from use of a management company.
“We’re not at the point where we want to bring a new inexperienced CEO with potential,” he said. “Right now, as a standalone, we need experience.”
The board announced in March that it was ending its management agreement with Quorum Health Resources.
According to a statement from the hospital, the CEO position has been an employee of QHR since 1987.
Luke said the board received dozens of applications and brought four candidates to the area for interviews.
In addition to speaking on the phone, Luke also released a written statement: “Since the beginning of this process, the board has been committed to finding a highly qualified candidate who has the skill, ability, passion and vision to lead the organization forward. We believe that we have two uniquely qualified finalists.”
