Press Release

NLCHD Announces New CEO

Afton, WY January 16, 2018

On behalf of the North Lincoln County Hospital District Board of Trustees, I am privileged to announce that we have extended an offer for the Chief Executive Officer position with Star Valley Medical Center and it has been accepted.  The new CEO is Bren Lowe of Livingston, Montana.  Bren will begin with Star Valley Medical Center on April 16, 2018.

Bren has served as the CEO of Livingston Healthcare for the past six years and the Pioneer Medical Center in Big Timber, MT prior to that.  Both of these facilities are affiliated with the Billings Clinic and are very similar to Star Valley Medical Center.  In 2105 under Bren’s leadership, Livingston was named a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by the National Rural Health Association.  In 2016 and 2017 they were named a Top 20 CAH.

The Board would like to thank Trevor Merritt, SVMC Human Resources Director, and the CEO Search Committee for the countless hours they invested into the interview process.  We would also like to thank the SVMC staff for their participation and feedback during the interviews.  Most of all we would like to thank the staff, leadership team, and Mike Hunsaker – Interim CEO for continuing to care for our patients and provide the quality, compassionate care that SVMC is known for.

Thank you,

Marlowe A. Scherbel
NLCHD Board Chair
