JRMC Hires Interim CEO
Jamestown, ND, — With the vacancy of the CEO position, Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s Board of Directors announced the selection of James H. Gingerich as Interim Chief Executive at their December meeting. Gingerich will start full time on January 10 and is expected to be at JRMC for several months while JRMC conducts a search for the CEO position. His presence will support the continued progress of JRMC projects and provide additional support for the search and selection of a permanent CEO.

“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to have Mr. Gingerich serve as CEO in the interim,” stated Connie Krapp, JRMC Board of Directors President. “He has a wealth of experience in not only leading hospitals both large and small, but also rural and urban. He has an approachable style and will be valuable to our employees as a resource and mentor during this time before we hire our next CEO.”

Mr. Gingerich has over 25 years of hospital administrative experience. For the past five years he has provided consulting and recruiting services to medical centers throughout the United States, serving several times in an interim CEO capacity. He most recently served as the interim CEO at Cooperstown Medical Center.
