Ross A. Matlack of Crookston, Minn., has been named the new president and chief executive officer of Fisher-Titus Medical Center, according to an announcement by Leslie Stoneham, chairman of the hospital’s board of directors.

He succeeds Patrick J. Martin, who will retire July 1 after 40 years of service, including 15 as president and CEO.

Matlack currently is president and CEO of RiverView Health in Crookston. His career in health care began in Ohio in 1995 at Lorain Community/St. Joseph Regional Health Center and includes executive positions as president of Holzer Medical Center in Jackson and chief operating officer at Cleveland’s University Hospitals Health System (St. Michael Hospital).

“We believe Mr. Matlack is bringing outstanding skills, talents and experience to the Medical Center and will help us continue our success in providing the highest quality of health care to our local community,” Stoneham said. “Our goal was to identify a person who fits the Fisher-Titus culture of employees, medical staff, volunteers, and board members working together to meet local health-care needs. We are certain that goal has been met.”

I hope he does not continue the draconian FTMC policy of giving a cost of living bonus instead of compounded yearly wage increases. Every time this happens, employees continue to fall behind but the corporate side contiunes to build new buildings and have overexagerated wage and compensation packages for leadership. The new CEO has the opportunity to do what is best for the employees of Huron County's largest employer. Time will tell.
