The Russell County Hospital Board of Directors met last evening, and the big new coming out of the meeting is the hiring of a new CEO.
The board announced that Patrick J. Branco will become the new CEO effective March 2nd.
Branco was born in Texas and raised in Minnesota. He has more than 40 years of professional experience in healthcare and more than half of that time as a CEO.
Branco replaces former CEO Scott Thompson, who stepped down a few months back and took a job in Madison County.
