The Board of Directors of Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital announced today that Brett Moorehouse has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer and Ken Marx as Chief Financial Officer. Both appointments are effective immediately.
In May, the Board made Moorehouse, then the hospital’s Chief Operating Officer, interim President and CEO following the resignation of the previous CEO. Moorehouse is retaining his Chief Operating Officer duties.
“Brett has demonstrated outstanding leadership since he joined the hospital in 2006,” said Bill Wilhite, Chair of Ranken Jordan’s Board of Directors. “He led a major facility expansion and created new services for our growing patient needs. Brett is the right leader for our team, which is committed to fulfill Mary Ranken Jordan’s vision for serving more children in our community while emphasizing our Care Beyond the Bedside model.”
Marx was the interim CFO, also taking on the role in May when the previous CFO resigned. He is a certified public accountant with 35 years of health care experience. He has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2014.
“Ken’s experience spans the entire spectrum of health care,” said Willhite. “We were grateful four years ago when joined our board. We were extremely fortunate earlier this year when he agreed to step out of retirement and take on the hospital’s interim CFO role.”
Both appointments received unanimous votes by the Board.
