 - Terrence A. Hansen has been appointed interim president and CEO of Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital (HMH), according to Scott Reiner, senior vice president of Adventist Health and chairman of the HMH board. Hansen will assume his new position June 1.

"We are pleased that Terry has agreed to serve in this interim role," stated Reiner. "I am confident that his management skills and vast health care experience - especially in small, rural hospitals - will benefit HMH and its community until a permanent CEO is found."

Hansen is no stranger to the hospital or the Howard Foundation: last year, he served as a consultant on the development of a hospital-based wellness center. In addition, Hansen has capably filled short- term interim CEO roles for other Adventist Health hospitals in California.

Prior to his retirement in November 2004, Hansen was the president and CEO of Paradise Valley Hospital in National City, California. He also has served as executive vice president and COO for Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC), a 797-bed tertiary care academic medical facility in Loma Linda, Calif. Prior to joining LLUMC, he was president of Hospital Governance, Inc., a health care consulting firm that specialized in turnaround projects. Hansen also has served in various executive capacities at St. Helena Hospital Napa Valley.

According to Reiner, an executive search has been underway to find a permanent replacement for Kevin Erich, HMH's president and CEO, who is transitioning to the same duties at Feather River Hospital in Paradise, Calif. later this month.
