Effective tomorrow (May 2), Gretchen Dahlen has announced her resignation from her role as chief administrative officer of Winneshiek Medical Center.
“We would like to thank Gretchen for her many contributions and wish her well in her future endeavors,” said Joe Kruse, chief administrative officer for Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse, Wis., which provides administrative services to WMC through a management services agreement.
“She has done an outstanding job in implementing the hospital’s strategic plan, and has led many initiatives that resulted in improved financial performance and growth.”
“We have every confidence that we can make this a smooth transition,” said Rick Burras, WMC Board chair.
“We’ve been in operation for 100 years and we are accustomed to weathering changes together and maintaining high-quality care for our community.”
A broad-based search will be initiated immediately with the expectation that the position will be filled in four to six months.
