BRAWLEY — The Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District board will discuss seeking new chief executive and chief financial officers during its meeting Monday.
The item will be discussed in closed session during a meeting set to start at 5:15 p.m.
The search for a new CEO and CFO started in April after the board voted 3-2 to end its $590,000 per year contract with Portland, Ore.,-based Brim Healthcare Inc., which had managed the hospital for 14 years.
CEO Richard Mendoza and CFO Daniel Heckathorne are Brim employees and clauses in their contracts prohibit them from continuing in their positions without Brim managing the hospital.
The Pioneers board had explored possibilities of retaining Mendoza and Heckathorne but agreed their retention is improbable, since Brim is steadfast in prohibiting the two from continuing.
