Parkland: Leadership Change Unrelated to Report of Deficiencies
A second CMS survey was in its third day on Wednesday and McDonald said she did not when it would be completed.
Once Anderson’s future is resolved, the board expects to formally begin the search for a new CEO and president for the safety net hospital. Although a search firm may be hired to find the new leader, McDonald said it’s possible that the board of managers will identify a candidate.
The board has not determined what it will be looking for in its next leader; according to McDonald even the president/CEO title may be up for discussion.
When asked if she thought Parkland had a problem at the top McDonald replied simply “it’s important to have leadership that’s adaptable and able to change.”
Anderson, whose annual compensation package is $885,368, declined to comment on his future with Parkland Memorial. He has been CEO and president of Parkland for almost 30 years.
