Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Oct, 20, 2010 5A Linda Satchwel i ' Staff Writer L Interim Chief Executive Of- ficer Linda Jameson received a contract when the Plumas Dis- trict Hospital board emerged from closed session in a special meeting held Oct. 13. Jameson, .who is merging CEO duties with her job as chief nursing officer, will re- ceive a salary of $170,000 a year, retroactive to Sept. 29, when she took over from Dick Hathaway. That salary, said board president Dr. Mark Satter- field, is midway between what she made previously and Hathaway's salary. She will receive the same benefits package Hathaway received.

Lic. #453927 CEO is expected to run four to six months while the board searches for a permanent CEO. Search for permanent CEO The board discussed its search for a permanent CEO in open session at the same meeting. Satterfield has taken an increasingly strong role in guiding the board as it be- came apparent Hathaway was on his way out. At Satterfield's suggestion, the board hired a former CEO and colleague of Satterfield's, Jack Hudock, to begin an inde- pendent search for a new CEO. He's been hired for approxi- mately two weeks, initially to get the ball rolling. At least one board member was un- aware he'd already started work. Satterfield also )resented a CEO job description from 2002, which he had updated because Hudock wanted a document he could show po- tential candidates. Director Bill EUiott, as well as the rest of the board, didn't seem ready to sign on to the proposed job description. E1- liott said it read more like a contract than a job description, which he defined as "a general outline of expectations." Board member Val Flani- gan agreed, suggesting the board get some current exam- ples of job descriptions. She al- so said she'd like to give Jame: son "a chance to shine" in her role as interim CEO for a while. Satterfield's urgency seemed to be that Hudock, who was already on the kids and pum-pkins Mackenzi Brown is gathering pumpkins and getting reddy for the Indian Valley Harvest Festival Saturday, Oct. 23, at the new community center in Greenville. Photo Kristy Brown (530) 283-2035 payroll, wanted the CEO de- scription to conduct an effec- tive search. They discussed getting ad- vice on the matter from the California Hospital Associa- tion and from Eastern Plumas Health Care CEO Tom Hayes, who may or may not end up playing a significant role in PDH's future plans. Roles discussed for him range from joint CEO of EPHC and PDH, consul- tant/mentor to the new CEO or occasional advisor. Jameson, who took an ac- tive part in the search discus- sion, is also involved in form- ing the job description and choosing the CEO search firm. Several of the larger con- sulting firms the board is con- sidering in addition to Hu- docli, who is apparently a cost saver for the hospital, are Ko- m/Ferry, Witt/Kieffer, BE Smith, and Hospital Financial Services (HFS). HFS and Hudock are very familiar with Northern Cali- fornia according to board members John Kimmel and Satterfield. HFS, however, wants 30 percent of a CEO's annual salary (Hathaway's salary was $205,000) for its efforts, with 10 percent up front and an exclusive contract. The board was unclear how that would affect candidates Hudock found before HFS came on. They also thought 30 percent was high. Elliott reminded the board no candidate would be chosen before the new board was in place. A new member (or members) woh't be seated un. til January -- the soonest that a new CEO could be seriously considered. " Kimmel pointed out there are two other internal candidates who have shown interest in the CEO position. They are Cynthia White, front office clinic supervisor at PDH's North Fork Clinic, and Dan Brandes, facilities man- ager, who played an integral role planning for the new hos. pital buildiflg. At this point, however, Brandes has not ap- plied, as he wants to be sup- portive of Jameson, as she takes on the interim CEO role: According to Satterfield, White previously worked in an executive position for Ken Shay, a former PDH board ,member who also "ran a se- ries of health care facilities in Southern California." The directors decided they would utilize Jack Hudock's services for one to two months and look at the possi- bility of also hiring another firm. They'd also have Tom Hayes take a top-to-bottom look at their entire operfition. r.., Byers' LeafGuard gutters NBER Guaranteed, m Guaranteed to NEVER clog for as long as you own your home, or we'll clean them for FREE.
