Hospital board takes no action after 2+ hour meeting

The Russell County Hospital Board of Directors met for about 2.5 hours in executive session Friday to discuss “personnel issues” but when the board reconvened into open session, no action was taken.

As of now, the hospital remains without an interim CEO following the departure of former CEO Patrick Branco. At a special-called meeting last week, the board discussed a possible interim CEO and the board has met three times since then in executive session to discuss personnel.

The hospital board will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the boardroom at Duo Broadband.
