Ruth McDaniel is stepping down as the chief executive officer of Spring View Hospital.
McDaniel announced last week that she will be retiring on Aug. 31.
“I have enjoyed the last three years at Spring View. It was a pleasure getting to know the people here and I will certainly miss everyone,” she wrote in a statement about her decision.
McDaniel has served as the CEO since June 21, 2010.
Judy Gaddie, the chairwoman of the Spring View Board of Trustees, said McDaniel has been a tremendous asset to the hospital and to the community.
McDaniel came to Spring View with lots of experience in rural hospitals, and she helped Spring View craft its most recent strategic plan, according to Gaddie.
“She’s a nurse first and foremost. Her whole mantra is truly caring for sick people,” Gaddie said.
She added that McDaniel will be missed.
“I certainly wish her the best and happiness in her retirement,” Gaddie said.
