Harff Steps Down as Bartlett CEO
Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau is looking for a new chief executive officer.
JUNEAU- Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau is looking for a new chief executive officer.
Chris Harff announced Tuesday she is leaving the position she's had for 13 months. Her last day is Oct. 18.
Hospital spokesman Jim Strader says in a statement that Harff said her professional experience and the needs of the Juneau community are not a good fit.
Board members last month directed Harff to address employee complaints. She also introduced a plan to reduce the hospital staff by 15 positions this year.
The City and Borough of Juneau owns the hospital, which operates largely on patient fees.
An interim CEO will be announced next month while a search for a permanent replacement is conducted.
