Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

After conducting a nationwide executive search led by healthcare leadership solutions firm B. E. Smith, Sitka Community Hospital in Sitka, Alaska, has hired Jeff Comer as chief executive officer. A veteran healthcare executive with more than 20 years of leadership experience, Comer will assume his new duties at Sitka Community Hospital on September 15.

“We are very excited that Mr. Comer is joining the Sitka Community Hospital team as our new chief executive officer. The Hospital Board worked with B. E. Smith to conduct a nationwide search and valued the input from the employees of the hospital and the community to make this selection. It is our expectation that the skills and experience Mr. Comer brings to Sitka Community Hospital will enable us to continue the compassionate and competent care we have all come to expect,” said Celeste Tydingco, president of the Sitka Community Hospital Board.

Formerly, Comer served as chief executive officer of Arizona General Hospitals and The Surgical Hospital of Phoenix in Phoenix, Ariz., providing leadership and strategic direction for multiple hospitals, free standing emergency rooms and surgical hospital management companies. Comer also held the role of senior vice president of operations at Nueterra Healthcare in Kansas City, Kan., where he was responsible for over 30 hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers. He also served as chief executive officer for two Tenet Health Hospitals, Tenet Whittier Hospital Medical Center in Whittier, Calif., and Tenet Lake Mead Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

“Sitka Community Hospital was seeking an experienced senior healthcare executive to provide strategic direction and vision to position the organization for continued growth in the new healthcare reform environment,” said Kathy Noland, vice president of senior executive search for B. E. Smith, the healthcare executive search firm who conducted the nationwide CEO search for Sitka Community Hospital. “Jeff’s experience and leadership style were the perfect fit.”

Comer earned a Master of Health Care Administration from Washington University in St. Louis, Mo. and a Bachelor of Psychology from Arizona State University in Phoenix, Ariz. He is a certified healthcare executive through the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). He and his wife Mariah, a personal fitness trainer and non-profit manager, are excited to become very active members of the Sitka community.
