Candidate For JCHC Administrator Tentatively Accepts Offer

The search for a new administrator/CEO for the Johnson County Healthcare Center in Buffalo appears to be close to finished, pending acceptance of a counter offer from the candidate, according to current administrator Sandy Ward.

Ward said the hospital's board of trustees had extended an offer to a candidate and they have tentatively accepted the offer, but an official hire cannot happen until the board convenes in executive session to approve, accept and finalize the counter offer.

The board has chosen not to officially release the names of any prospective candidates during the search for a new administrator, and will not release the name of the candidate they have extended the offer to until the hiring process is completed.

The executive session for the board to finalize the hire is scheduled for this coming Wednesday evening, and Ward said he would have an announcement naming the new hire soon thereafter.
