Hospital CEO set to update Del Norte County supervisors

Written by Triplicate Staff May 27, 2013 05:46 pm

Sutter Coast Hospital’s new CEO is scheduled to make a presentation at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday.

Interim CEO Linda Horn is expected to provide an update on hospital issues. Horn replaced Eugene Suski, who resigned as Sutter Coast’s CEO on April 25. 

Horn’s presentation comes two weeks after an update from hospital Chief of Staff Dr. Greg Duncan on the hospital’s potential “regionalization,” which has generated widespread community opposition. At that meeting, following a contentious discussion, supervisors decided to send a letter declining a request by Sutter Health, the hospital’s parent organization, to participate in a strategic options study on the facility’s future.

The Del Norte County Board of Supervisors meets at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Flynn Administrative Center, 981 H St. Agendas are available online atwww.co.del-norte.ca.us.
