From the desk of Community Relations Director of the Northfield Hospital and Clinics, Scott Richardson:
Last night at a special meeting, the Northfield Hospital and Clinics Board hired Mary Quinn Crow, its former Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer until a permanent replacement for Mark Henke is found. Henke died August 31 during surgery related to his renal cancer. Tim Gronseth, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has been serving as the Acting President and CEO. The board said Quinn Crow’s knowledge of the organization and understanding of its mission made her a logical choice. Her hiring will allow Gronseth to concentrate on his duties as chief financial officer. Quinn Crow retired in May after 32 years with Northfield Hospital & Clinics, the last 17 in an executive administrative role. She will begin her work on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 4/5 time.
The board also approved plans to begin the process of selecting a permanent President and CEO. They expect it will take about six months
Charles Kyte was named vice-chair for the rest of this year. The position had been vacant since Gina Franklin moved from vice-chair to chair earlier this year, following the resgination of Dixon Bond.
