Pat Markham announced her retirement last fall. She came to Cass County Memorial Hospital as Assistant Administrator in November 1984 and was promoted to Administrator/CEO in June 1988.
Over the years, she has seen many changes in the world of medicine, and at the facilities operated by the Cass County Health System, including the areas of technology, patient care and regulatory moves that have affected healthcare and healthcare providers.
Markham has led CCHS through two major building addition and renovation projects during her tenure. She says “I’m proud to leave our community with an outstanding medical facility that will meet our patients’ needs for many years to come.” The building updates have addressed many of the changes in how health care is delivered, transitioning from an inpatient to an outpatient-oriented facility.
Markham says she is looking forward to spending more time with her family and just having a little time for herself in retirement. Todd Hudspeth was selected in November to succeed CEO Pat Markham. Hudspeth, who brings more than 15-years of experience as a CEO in critical access hospitals, will take over as CEO at CCMH, on January 20th.
