He and his wife, Heather, have rented a house in Brookings. He says they are looking forward to building a new house and to being active in the community.

McMillan has been an avid scuba diver and instructor. He once owned a five-star facility sanctioned by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors.

McMillan says he is enthusiastic about leading the employees and medical staff of Curry General Hospital "on the path toward strong, positive change.

"In addition to regaining a positive financial status, I want the hospital and clinics to be a great place to work, with a team dedicated to great patient care and to each other," McMillan adds.

  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Yields on top-rated German 10-year Bunds, the benchmark for European borrowing costs, fell as some investors chose to preserve their capital in low-yielding but relatively safe assets. The moves were marginal, though, as investors did not want to position too heavily on either side. "The European market is frozen ahead of the Greek referendum," said Markus Allenspach, head fixed income research at Julius Baer.
  • Greeks deeply divided heading into crucial vote
    Tens of thousands of Greeks took to the streets on Friday in rival rallies that laid bare the deep divide heading into a referendum that may decide the country?s future in Europe?s single currency. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, elected in January on a promise to end years of austerity, urged people packing Syntagma square in central Athens to spurn the tough terms of an aid deal offered by international creditors to keep the country afloat. Tsipras says they are bluffing, fearing the fallout for Europe and the global economy.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
