Hospital CEO resigns

South Big Horn County Hospital District CEO John Adlesich resigned on Friday, citing a desire to move closer to his family.

The hospital board, which in recent months has been at odds over Adlesich’s performance, was expected to consider his resignation and the plan moving forward at
its meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 28.

Adlesich said in a statement, “I have enjoyed my nearly two years of working at South Big Horn County Hospital District and am proud of everything we have accomplished.

“We have an amazing team of employees and health care providers in place, capable of meeting the needs of our community and its residents moving forward. I am confident that we will continue to be the primary choice of health care for our citizens.”
