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.

  • Greece seeks to reassure Europe as tensions rise
    New Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, striking a conciliatory note on debt talks after a turbulent start to office, has called the European Central Bank chief to assure him that Athens was seeking an agreement. The new government in Athens made clear from its first day in power that it would not back down on its election pledges to abandon the austerity policies imposed under the bailout agreement sealed by the last government.
  • Germany, ECB play hardball with Greece
    BERLIN/HELSINKI (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel ruled out a debt writedown for Greece on Saturday, and a European Central Bank policymaker threatened to cut off funding to Greek banks if Athens does not agree to renew its bailout package. The euro zone's paymaster and the ECB are both taking a tough line with Greece's new leftist government, whose leader swept to victory last Sunday promising that five years of austerity, "humiliation and suffering" were over. Alexis Tsipras has also promised to renegotiate agreements with the European Commission, ECB and International Monetary Fund "troika" and write off much of Greece's 320 billion euro ($360 billion) debt, which at more than 175 percent of gross domestic product is the world's second-highest after Japan.
