By Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System


HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Effective immediately, Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System (HRHS) announces the conclusion of the working agreement and assignment of Interim CEO, Jeff Egbert.

Egbert joined HRHS as Interim CEO on December 20, 2022. The Board of Directors hired Egbert after the resignation of Ken Johnson in November of the same year.

With over 30 years of hospital leadership experience, and the past 10 years dedicated to different Interim CEO roles, Egbert was hired to bring in an objective view of HRHS and to execute necessary changes within the system. Through accomplishing these tasks, the organization has created a more sustainable future for the healthcare system, even amidst difficult financial times across the healthcare industry.

Current Chief Operating Officer, Nick Baldetti, has stepped into the role of Acting CEO and will assume all responsibilities for both the CEO and COO positions until a permanent solution has been identified.

The Board of Directors will begin a search for a permanent CEO in the near future, and no timeline has been expressed as to when they expect an individual to be identified.
