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.
