Boone Hospital Center president steps down to take new position

COLUMBIA – Dan Rothery announced Monday he will be leaving his position at Boone Hospital Center.

Rothery has decided to accept a new lead position within BJC Home Care, Corporate Health and Behavioral Health Services in St. Louis. He has served as president of Boone Hospital Center for six years.

The hospital had its most extensive period of expansion in its history under Rothery's tenure, including the opening of the 128-bed new patient tower with private rooms in 2011.

Boone Hospital Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Randy Morrow will serve as interim president. Morrow previously served as interim president, before Rothery joined Boone Hospital.

Boone Hospital board of trustees will be searching for a candidate with attributes similar to Rothery's so that the hospital can continue to build on its tradition of providing outstanding health care to patients in Boone County and beyond, said Fred Parry, the board's chairman.

Rothery said he is leaving Boone Hospital with mixed emotions but knows he is leaving the hospital in good hands.

Supervising editor is Simina Mistreanu.
