LACONIA, NH – The Board of Trustees today announced the Interim CEO will be Dr. Robert (Bob) Evans. Dr. Evans is expected to serve in this role until a permanent replacement has been hired.
Dr. Evans has been an anesthesiologist with LRGH since 1991, but his experience goes well beyond the clinical field. He has served on various medical staff and hospital committees since 1994, joined the Board of Trustees in 1995, and since 1999, has been the Chair of the Finance and Investment Committee.
In addition to his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine, Dr. Evans also received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from University of New Hampshire.
“Dr. Evans’ business and medical education, along with his extensive experience with LRGHealthcare’s clinical operations and financial performance, make him the right choice for this interim position,” states Scott Clarenbach, Board Chairman. “Along with the Board and Senior Team, his insight and assessment of our organization’s processes and financial turnaround will be vital as we make the transition to a new CEO.”
“I’m honored to be selected to lead LRGHealthcare through this transition,” states Dr. Evans. “My experience in multiple realms of healthcare operations has afforded me the ability to review things from all perspectives and I look forward to doing just that in my new role as interim CEO.”
Dr. Evans is a New Hampshire native originally from Rochester and has been a part of the Lakes Region community for over 25 years.
Dr. Evans’ role as Interim President and CEO will commence Monday, April 4.
