I am very pleased to announce that Wayne Allen has accepted the position of Chief Financial Officer for Mendocino Coast District Hospital, replacing Bob Anderson. Wayne is one of the best CFOs that I have ever had the pleasure to work with and I am could not be happier that he has chosen to come back to MCDH. He was our CFO from 2006 to 2008, during a period when MCDH converted to critical access hospital designation and achieved an impressive financial turnaround. For the past 2 years Wayne served as the Chief Financial Officer for Northern Hawaii Community Hospital on the Big Island of Hawaii. That hospital, too, thrived under his leadership. With National Health Care Reform, the California budget crisis and our current economy, it is a difficult financial time for hospitals, including Mendocino Coast Hospital. We are extremely fortunate to have Wayne Allen back on our leadership team. Welcome home Wayne!
