Carroll Co. Memorial Hospital Names New CEO

The new CEO for Carroll County Memorial Hospital is Scott Thoreson.  The Hospital Board of Directors announced the selection, effective July 1st, as current CEO Jeff Tindle retires.

Thoreson comes to CCMH from Springfield, Minnesota, where he served as the Administrator of the Mayo Clinic Health System for 26 years in Springfield and St. James.  In that position, he oversaw approximately 200 full-time employees and a budget similar to CCMH.   Thoreson’s understanding of the critical-access hospital setting and the challenges faced therein is valuable to the future of our community hospital.
