(6/20/13) Stan Gaynor, President and CEO of Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH), will retire on June 28, 2013.
Gaynor's tenure with BRMH began in 1993 after being the CEO for Burnett Medical Center for 13 years.
Gaynor said he was drawn to healthcare because of the dynamics of the industry, the mix of science and technology, the interaction with people, and the opportunity to work in an area that serves a community need.
During his tenure, BRMH has experienced significant growth and organizational success. He was part of the team that lead the hospital to several awards including, Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work, The Wisconsin Forward Mastery Award, The Jackson Group's Laureate Award, and as a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital.
"Stan Gaynor is an excellent leader and we are grateful for his leadership. He kept the hospital on the cutting edge of rural health care issues and helped us achieve outstanding results in our delivery of care" said Board Chair, Barb Brower.
Gaynor has been involved at the state level by serving on the boards for the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative, the Wisconsin Hospital Association, and Shared Health Services Corporation. The community of Black River Falls has benefited also by his leadership roles for the Interfaith Caregivers, Ho-Chunk Institutional Review Board, St. Joseph's Parish Council, Black River Falls Rotary Club, and as a volunteer with Employers Supporting the Guard and Reserve.
"I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve as the chief executive officer and am proud of the accomplishments of the staff. As I reflect on my years of serving the community and Black River Memorial Hospital, it is deeply satisfying to know the patients in our community will receive the best care possible" said Gaynor.
