Hospital names Lowe new interim CEO
A new interim chief executive officer is on board at Franklin Foundation Hospital.
Phillip W. Lowe will serve as interim until a permanent CEO has been located, according to the Hospital Service District 1 Board of Commissioners.
Lowe most recently served as chief executive officer of San Juan Health Service District in Monticello, Utah. He has also provided interim executive leadership for hospitals in Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and Idaho.
For nearly 20 years, Lowe has been in health care administration in a wide variety of capacities. He received a bachelor of arts degree from Brigham Young University and his master of science degree in health care administration from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
A national search for a permanent CEO for the hospital is under way. The hospital’s management group, Quorum Health Resources, is working closely with the board, medical staff and employees to find a CEO that meets the needs of the hospital and community.
“Our goal is to provide a seamless transition of leadership during the CEO search process, giving the board time to find the right candidate for the permanent position,” said QHR Vice President Don Smithburg.
