CEO search underway at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center


OGDENSBURG — The search for a new chief executive at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center is under way, though it could be several months before anyone is hired.

Claxton-Hepburn spokeswoman Laura C. Shea said Chief Operating Officer Vicki E. Perrine and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Gary R. Hart have been acting as co-CEOs since the resignation of Mark A. Webster at the end of December.

Mr. Webster resigned from the hospital to take a position as the CEO at the Cortland Regional Medical Center in Cortland.

The hospital’s board of directors has hired health care executive search firm Foley Proctor Yoskowitz, Morristown, N.J., to conduct a national search for candidates, Mrs. Shea said.

A local search committee composed of members of the board of directors, administrative staff, management and doctors, led by the Rev. Thomas Patterson, will review the applications and make a final selection.

Mrs. Shea said that so far there are no candidates for the position within the hospital.
