GOLD BEACH – Members of the Curry General Hospital board of directors on Wednesday approved the hiring of a longtime health executive and experienced hospital administrator to serve as the interim chief executive officer for the Curry General Hospital Health Network.

A resident of Aberdeen, Wash., Thomas J. Troy served as president and CEO of Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee for 20 years. He left his position there in 1996 to help restructure the Baptist Hospital System in Nashville, Tenn., and then became the president and CEO for Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen for four years.

Troy worked as a project consultant for Curry General Hospital two and a half years ago when the hospital studied the feasibility of building a new urgent care center in south Curry County.

Doug Jamieson, board chair, says he and his co-directors are impressed with Troys "dedication, versatility and diversified experience."

"We were impressed with his organizational skills when he worked with us as a consultant, and we're especially impressed with his excellent ability to communicate. He'll be very good for the hospital staff and management, and the public," Jamieson said.

Throughout his career, Troy's expertise has included helping health care systems out of financial and organizational quagmires. During his tenure in Wenatchee, Troy directed the $12 million construction of a replacement hospital. He also inaugurated contract management of three rural hospitals.

While at Grays Harbor, Troy established a doctor recruitment program resulting in 18 doctors recruited in 18 months. As part of a financial recovery plan, he helped restore profitability in under two years.

Troy served in the U.S. military as an army captain, and Distinguished Military Graduate. Among the several posts he held included administrative officer for the Military Hospital Augmentation Program, U.S. Agency for International Development at South Vietnamese Provincial Hospital.

He is a life fellow with the American College of Healthcare Executives.

The Curry General Health Network includes the 24-bed critical access hospital in Gold Beach, the Brookings Medical Center and urgent care facility in Brookings, the Curry Family Medical clinic in Port Orford and Shore Pines, an assisted living center in Wedderburn.

Troy's post became effective immediately following the hospital board's approval.

  • Asia stocks reach three-year peak, China on the rise
    Hong Kong's key stock index rose 0.5 percent to its loftiest level in over 3-1/2 years on optimism that the economy has turned a corner and as investors wagered on more growth-friendly policies from Beijing. The charge had been led by Chinese banks after a Reuters report said the country's fifth-biggest bank by assets planned to seek more private investors. "The recent rally of Hong Kong and China stock markets is pretty much liquidity-driven due to favourable fund flow. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added 0.33 percent to be just a whisker from a peak last touched in April 2011.
  • Exclusive: Goldman unit eyes foray into China amid metals financing scandal
    NEW YORK/SYDNEY/LONDON (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs Group Inc's metals warehousing unit is exploring its first foray into China, and privately held C Steinweg has expanded capacity there, sources said, as a financing scandal in a major Chinese port fuels a scramble for market share. It has intensified a battle between new entrants and entrenched rivals in the multi-billion dollar business of securely storing the world's commodities in China, the world's biggest producer and user of base metals. As Goldman ponders a possible move into China, Western warehousing companies already operating there, including Glencore Plc unit Pacorini Metals and Trafigura-owned Impala [TRAFGF.UL], are scrambling to defend their turf. Detroit-based Metro International Trade Services, a major warehousing company that Goldman bought in 2010, is looking at setting up shop in Shanghai and other bonded locations in the country, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
  • Jaded Argentines brace for looming debt default
    Factory owner Norberto Garcia was poised to launch a series of new toys this year after grafting hard for the past decade to rebuild his business following Argentina's 2001-2002 economic crash and debt default. Garcia's wait-and-see attitude is typical of other businesses who anticipate a slowdown in sales in a country grappling with a surging inflation rate but are convinced any economic downturn will be moderate. While unsettling, the debt crisis today is a far cry from the turmoil of Argentina's $100 billion default in 2002, and Garcia is optimistic things will ultimately improve. Argentina's record default sent shockwaves through global capital markets and millions of Argentines lost their jobs as the economy collapsed.
