The Bowie Memorial Hospital Board of Directors announced the resignation of Michael McEachern, chief executive officer of the hospital. The date of his departure will be mid-May.
During McEachern's term, Bowie Memorial Hospital opened a new walk-in clinic, completed through Community Hospital Corporation a Community Health Needs assessment to determine the health needs of the community, and began hospital improvements under the direction of the Board. The hospital has been under management by CHC since December of 2013.
"We appreciate Michael's contributions to our hospital and community over the past year," said Tim Winn, Board Chair. "At this time, we are collaborating with CHC to search for a new executive leader. I am confident in the ability of the hospital and its dedicated staff members and physicians to provide quality, compassionate healthcare to meet the growing needs of our community."
