LENEXA, Kan. (PRWEB) July 26, 2013

After conducting a nationwide executive search led by healthcare leadership solutions firm B. E. Smith, Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) in Warrensburg, Mo., has hired Susan Stiles as president and chief executive officer. A seasoned healthcare executive with over 25 years of progressive experience leading and transitioning healthcare organizations, Stiles assumed her new duties at WMMC on June 27.

“Stiles thrives on developing high functioning teams and working toward common goals,” said Steve Higgins, chair of the board of trustees for WMMC. “Her experience in executing business plans, developing patient care outcomes with best practices and optimizing clinical departments will be a great asset for our organization.”

Formerly, Stiles held the role of chief nursing officer with WMMC where she provided leadership for the 87-bed, state-of-the-art, not-for-profit county hospital with nearly 700 FTE’s. Stiles previously was a senior clinical strategist with Cerner Corporation in Kansas City, Mo., where she consulted on best practice and evidence-based design of new hospital facilities. She also served as chief nursing officer at Centerpoint Medical Center (HCA) in Independence, Mo., and at Menorah Medical Center (HCA) in Overland Park, Kan.

“Western Missouri Medical Center was seeking an experienced senior healthcare executive to provide strategic and operational leadership while creating a culture of accountability at all levels throughout the organization,” said Mark Madden, senior vice president of executive search for B. E. Smith, the healthcare executive search firm who conducted the nationwide CEO search for WMMC. “Stiles’ rural healthcare experience and financial acumen coupled with her established relationships with existing senior leaders will prove to be an asset when striving to increase market share.”

Stiles earned a master’s degree in business administration and in health care administration from Webster University in Kansas City, Mo. Additionally, she earned a bachelor’s of science degree in nursing from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Mo.
