Dr. Steven Davis will serve as interim chief medical officer at Winneshiek Medical Center until a permanent CMO can be found.
At Wednesday's meeting of the WMC Board of Trustees, the Board unanimously approved the appointment of Davis to the position, which was vacated by Dr. Susan Halter in early July.
Davis, a general surgeon, joined WMC in October of last year. In March, he was named medical director of WMC.
Following Davis' appointment as interim CMO, the Board went into closed session "to discuss proprietary information in connection with the chief medical officer search process" (for the permanent position).
WMC will continue to search for a permanent replacement for Halter.
